    you think the guys at bought a WYSIWYG frontpage-like html editor, pressed a button and got the perfect designs??
    If you ever thought finding a program with a button labeled *click here to make all your wishes come true* then quit searching.

    Those results are most likely accomplished with:
    planning, coding, testing, editing, debugging and last but not least... KNOWLEDGE!

    Great (and original) web designs comes after the work of graphic designers, web designers and web developers...
    You can have tons of money to buy photoshop, dreamweaver, fireworks and others but know nothing on how to use them right.

    It takes a long way to say "GREAT" or "PERFECT"!

    Anyway, I might be mistaken... if ever exists such an app making the coolest graphics, the cleaner code and the most usable and working web interface then I'll be the first to buy it...
  4. Nah they probably just used Notepad and MSPaint.

    (that was a joke by the way)

    But seriously Rootz is right, you don't just buy the apps and make pages like that. It takes a lot of time and planning. The best start I suggest you make is Macromedia Studio, but it ain't going to be cheap.

    (Macromedia Fireworks MX is particulary good for creating graphic intensive websites.)

    Yup, knowledge is the answer.
    It's the same with designing/coding/creating anything tho I should think. Your never going to just stare at a monitor and the production of your dreams will appear, you need practice.

    LOL...get Macromedia Studio MX and Adobe Photoshop. But, yes, you need to know art and design fairly well, and that is something that a program cannot give you. However, it isn't impossible to acquire that skill with enough drive and time.

    I've been doing webdesign for businesses and companies for about 5 years.
    I started out before you could get good software. I used notepad and Photoshop, and I LEARNED html, tag by tag.

    Now, I use Dreamweaver and Photoshop.

    The rest of ther replies here are good - any monkey can learn to use an editor, but only TALENT will design a good site. For every decent site out there, there are literally a thousand that BLOW.

    Just my 2 cents,

    well.. knowledge is 1 important thing (using the s/w).. another thing is XP-erience (experience :D).. i've been doing web page designing and i can see the difference from each of it.
