Macromedia Dreamweaver 8
Without doubt this is the Photoshop of the Web design world. If you want the best look no further, but, like Photoshop, don't expect to walk through this with ease. It's a far more complex program than most and does need a degree of knowledge to get you into serious web build...and serious it can be. Fortunately Macromedia provide some superb tutorials to get you going and their web site has a fountain of knowledge to gleam from. The web designer’s favourite has a cascading style sheet option, so all the page styles and fonts can be set up from the outset and applied throughout the site to give consistency and a professional look. You can also check cross-browser compatibility and fix any problems before you go live.
Photos can be cropped, resized and resampled without switching to Photoshop and you can paste in Word or Excel content with formatting intact, and connect to FTP with ease.
If you just want a simple web site and have no desire to become a web developer this may be too much, but for those who want to take complete control you won't buy better.
