Home Forums Other Creating Designs without Photoshop Re: Creating Designs without Photoshop


I must admit that Photoshop is like a second home to me when working on websites, I always spend a lot of time designing my ideas in there but you don’t need to be a genius in the design department to benefit from using a program like photoshop to map out a site before coding it.

Obviously it’s not a requirement but you can create a wireframe design in there with minimal knowledge of the program to the correct proportions for your site, work out margins, and padding beforehand and just have something to go by when you start coding it.

Regardless of my opinion it’s up to you how you want to proceed with a project, if you’re more comfortable building from scratch then do it your way and don’t worry about it too much.
