REVIEW

I know when any software that is called adobe what comes to your mind is all about editing photos and also images but this time you are wrong let me tell you about the adobe Dreamweaver and it is all about developing websites. The first time I downloaded it I realized they even offer tutorials which help new users in this field of websites but thanks to them now I can be able to have a particular website of their own and also the other good thing about them is that I also was able to view and see the end product of how my websites looks like and then this helps the user to know whether they are on the right track or they need to change anything.

FEATURES

The following are the features

Pros

  • It offers tutorials for new persons
  • It is very practical to use

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5: simplification and help for the new users.

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, November 27, 2015

First time users encountered an improved and simplified assistants, to save confusion. In addition, instructions on how to efficiently use the default layout of a web page for someone without experience have included a constant help. I also found something really useful is that we can navigate the HTML and PHP using the same links page, and can filter files by format to focus on the construction of PHP or CSS layout.

Something that greatly appreciate the DTP is the new mode called Inspect Mode, If we add the possibility of seeing how the HTML code automatically changes depending on the Javascript event we are running live in the rendered web page, Dreamweaver win many points comfort against its competitors. And for those who like to observe the code of other websites to learn (not to borrow code, hopefully), Dreamweaver is now able to surf the Internet and see live changes in the source code of any page. Dreamweaver CSS5 has full support for Subversion, which can seamlessly manage the development of our websites using the version control system SVN

Pros

  • The program starts quickly and has a light and fast performance
  • Improved and streamlined assistants to novice users

Cons

  • Not a single improvement over databases

Feel the freedom to create your webpage with complete and useful tools

By Chris Larrage

On Thursday, April 3, 2014

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 includes some useful tools for creating any kind of website in a workflow very similar to what you can find in Photoshop or any Adobe software. I used this application for some basic projects I had in mind and if you have used some of Adobe programs before, you will find that Dreamweaver offers a similar working way and thanks to the templates it offers, it is much easier than just designing your website on your own.

The main aspect of this program is the tools and possibilities it grants. With so little knowledge before you start your project, and patience, you will be able to come with really great websites, maybe not as good as you will make learning advanced techniques, but they will be good enough.

I really recommend this application for those users that want to start learning how to create their own websites. It is good learning software for which you will be able to find any kind of help all over the Internet with tutorials and users’ guides. Give it a chance and learn along the time you will spend with it in case you want an application like this.

Pros

  • Very complete tools and functions
  • Use of templates for your personal projects
  • Compatible with WordPress and other web software

Cons

  • May be not so easy to use if you are not used to Adobe

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 is a web design tool that will make it so much easier for the creation of your own webpages, with a just a little bit of help. You can try the free version or get the full one, depending on your needs.

If you are fond of the Adobe software styl, you will find that, visually, this software is similar to its suite of applications. This is proof of Dreamweaver's philosophy -once you get to know and understand one program, you can easily get used to the rest of them because of the nature of its mechanics.

In this instance, Dreamweaver retains the same way of doing things. Even though you may know nothing about web design, any early difficulties encountered are soon overcome, so it may be difficult to master very quickly, but it is a worthy tool.

In this version, Adobe Dreamweaver allows you to compose your website

In the same way you create images on Adobe Photoshop you can create a webpage with Adobe Dreamweaver CS5. Its different tools are very convenient and practical for the creation of a website.

The application comes with some tutorials for the novice user in case the process of website creation initially proves to be too difficult. New users or beginners on this subject may want to complete the guides in order to gain more knowledge about web design.

For those who are experienced enough on this issue, Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 includes some interesting features, like BrowseLab, which will help you to see how your site will look like when it is finally uploaded to the Internet.

Full visual control

A great feature of this application is that the main purpose, website design, can be done visually without any prior knowledge of programming languages. Select a template, customize it with your own elements, and you will have created your own website. However, if you are fond of coding don’t worry, you can also develop your code with this editor too.

Since it is Adobe software, the inclusion of Flash components has been refined to work more easily with them. This way Dreamweaver becomes a pretty useful application since Flash elements are very often used to make websites visually more attractive.

Alternatives

There are some alternatives to Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, like Web Creator 5 Professional, that offers a good range of tools and which produce quality results. There are others like KompoZer which are open source and are kept constantly up to date by its community.
