    InDesign or Muse?

    Seamus_Warren

      Hello forum,

       

      Can I use InDesign as a web design tool or should I subscribe to Muse?

       

      I would prefer to use the software I've already got.

       

      I need to build a simple, clean and attractive site that includes a photo album.

       

      Thank you.

          InDesign is DEFINITELY NOT a web tool. You should use Muse which is an excellent web tool by all reports I've heard.

            And if you know InDesign, implementing Muse is a breeze.

              Thanks for the comments.

               

              I am new to InDesign but already like the environment and the concept of web design from a publishing perspective.

               

              My unsderstading is Muse is subcription-only and not stand alone software I can buy as a one-off purchase.

               

              I only want to make one or two websites updating them from time to to so a monthly subscription seems a bit much for my needs.

               

              Of course, Muse sounds pretty cool though. Easy for a dummy like me to use.

               

              My current web site is pretty appalling. It's an interacitve PDF here:

              EDIT: If the purpose is to showcase self-catered accommodation, I should consider using existing online providers like "stayz" or whatever. Will go check out these options when possible.
