    I personally use

    • Photoshop CS3 for images/banners/logos
    • FTP Commander since its a pretty fast FTP app
    • Notepad2 since it code friendly
    • Macromedia Dreamweaver MX sometimes when dealing with HTML
    what about you? Would be interesting what you guys use so we can all learn from each other.


    PS: i heard XARA was good but never tried it, and GIMP, never thought of it, anyone has it?

    I mostly use Dreamweaver CS3 for my web pages, Photoshop CS3 for images, and SmartFTP for... well, FTP.

    I have used GIMP before. In my experience, it's an excellent alternative to Photoshop if you're not willing to shell out for it.

    I still use Photoshop 7.0 and it does everything i need it to. I also use Dreamweaver MX and as far as ftp goes, I do trial periods of higher rated ftp clients whenever needed. I use Indesign as well but thats for the catalog I've been working for on my 2nd job.

    I use Photoshop CS3, Dreamweaver CS3, and surprisingly most of the time I code my website through cPanel's own Code Editor. I think is much faster as you can update your code much faster.

    I use:
    . Eclipse PDT
    . Programmer's Notepad
    . XAMPP
    . FileZilla 3
    . SQLyog Community Edition
    Don't do much graphics design, but I have:
    . Paint.NET
    . Inkscape - don't know jack about vector art, but it's fun to play around with
    . GIMP

    All open source and [legally] free.
    SQLyog is the only program that isn't wholly free.

    what do you mean "Mozilla for test."? If your doing a webSite for a client you have to Test in Mozilla, Internet Explorer, Opera and AOL. For example I stop using FireFox and started using Opera.

    About me I use pretty much all the same programs as most.
    Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash, Filezilla, most of the time I FTP with Dreamweaver.

    I use all the adobe apps:
    1) Dreamweaver CS3 for coding.
    2) Photoshop CS3 for Imaging
    3) Fireworks CS3 for banners.
    4) Flash Pro CS3 for flash.
    5) Notepad because it take forever for Dreamweaver to load.

    I tend to stray away from any Dreamweaver kind of programs, since they don't understand the way CSS laysout the divs. Well my version didn't atleast..
    but in any case I use:

    *Photoshop
    *Illustrator
    *Flash
    *Notepad2
    *XAMPP
    *ColorBlender (for making color schemes)
    *myself xD

    I use:

    Notepad ++ (nice highlighting, fast and simple when writing CSS, XHTML and PHP)

    FileZilla for FTP, a little ugly but it does the job well enough

    The GIMP for graphic design, I don't do much work in it and it crashes on closing sometimes on Windows XP, but it does what I need.

    All free, all easy to use.
