fireworks is the best, it is optimized for designing websites.

Plenty of programs do just fine. PhotoShop. PhotoPaint. GIMP. Fireworks. Use what you're familiar with.

The programs I use are: Photoshop (this is a must) and Illustrator. Illustrator has many brushes and very smart tools for creating logos and templates very easy and fast. I usually combine the Illustrator results to Photoshop.

I am kind of interested in this topic too because I want to change the template I was using all the time (it was one I could choose out of a hundred of availables) and create my very own, because now that my side has so much traffic I think it need kind of a fresh change - it has to increase, develop and be better than before.

I use PhotoShop and works great for me. I have no complaints.

Clearly you don't need any more input about Photoshop since everyone here recc'ed it but I'm still gonna throw in my 2 cents and say:


What a shocker.

if you really want to make it really really beautiful, combine photoshop and illustrator or if you want an all in one, try corel

I've used PhotoShop, PhotoPaint, GIMP, Fireworks and CorelDRAW. Any of them are very capable and can do the job. It's like asking a painter what type of paint they use. You should use what you like the most.

I like to use the combination of illustrator and photoshop

Consider this another vote for Photoshop and Illustrator. What seems the simplest answer is often also the best, IMO.

I like both Photoshop and Illustrator.

WARNING: This may sound rhetorical--- What is better than Photoshop is that one software that you'd want to master by heart over Photoshop. If you're not willing to learn and all you know right now is Photoshop, then Photoshop is the best.

Point is, what will work best with you is what you're willing to work your best with.

And BTW, I use, think that, Photoshop is the best.
