Not sure where to ask this question, so redirect me if necessary. I have the suite mentioned, CS6, and I'm doing fine with Dreamweaver. In fact I can learn to use each of the individual products. What I'd like to know is a more overall "strategy" or understanding how these products work together to design and create web sites. I'm not really sure, even after starting different tutorials, what are the real strengths of each, or when there is some overlap, when I should one over another. I've already created basic web sites with Dreamweaver. Can anyone point me to a book or resource which explains this very well? TIA
That's all I use for web.
Acrobat, Illustrator & inDesign are what I use for print.
Since Flash is not supported by mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, iTouch, Android. etc..), I never open the program. Flash is a dead web technology.
Thanks, Nancy. Understood about Flash.
Edge isn't in my suite, so that's not an option for me.
Fireworks "or" Photoshop - which one? Why
And if you don't mind me asking, is what you do kind of the accepted way, or just how you've done it?
I am a long-time Photoshop user so I use that almost exclusively. You can't beat it for photo editing and manipulation. However some people prefer Fireworks' PNG compression and other new CSS code generating features. Use whichever tools you feel most comfortable with.
I never allow graphics apps to generate my HTML code. It's not web worthy. When a design comp is approved by the client, I re-build everything in DW.
Edge Animate comes with Creative Cloud. You can sign-up for a free Cloud membership to try it.
I've been working as a web designer/developer since 1995. I can't speak for everyone, but I think my workflow is fairly typical.
