Tools | Photoshop Is Still The Best Option For Designers

Tools | Photoshop Is Still The Best Option For Designers | Designer's Resources | Scoop.it
The future of Photoshop as an essential tool used by web designers to stylize websites has come under some debate in recent days.
Mark Strozier's insight:

Fanboys make me cringe, however there are a few things I'm practically evangelical about. Photoshop has always been on that list of praise.  


I like the option to be able to design and code in the browser, however [for me] the genesis of any web/print design always starts in Photoshop. Adobe's Creative Cloud greatly simplifies related design tasks.

Free and not so free Photoshop web design templates.

Free and not so free Photoshop web design templates. | Designer's Resources | Scoop.it
In this modern phase of business getting a perfect design for the website of your corporate house is really a big issue.


Using a template can often save you the hassle of trying to solve a design problem. Templates is where form takes serious precedence over function. A template may look beautiful, but it does little if anything to specifically address isues you have with your web customers/audience.


Often times templates cause more headaches than help complete a design project sooner or cheaper.


Spoken like a true web designer huh?
