I'm an ICT-student and we got a project to make a website for a company. The company I got has an old website, but they want me to make a new one out of scratch. We were in groups of 2 people, but my partner left me hanging now I have to make it solo, that's not the problem though, I have experience with Adobe Photoshop, he had experience with Adobe Dreamweaver, he was suppose to teach me Dreamweaver and I teach him Photoshop, so it would've been the ideal team, or so it seemed.

I have Adobe Master Collection CS5.

I am able to use Adobe Photoshop with ease.

I cannot use Adobe Dreamweaver, as I have no experience with it.

I have had experience with CSS codes, in pre made forums and such.

I have access to the old website's host and FTP( no clue what to do with these though)

What I ask is if someone knows of a good tutorial and can point me towards it, on how to make the design and code the website with Photoshop/Dreamweaver.

Thank you in advanced.

My System

the first thing i would do is grab a piece of paper and draw the structure for the website out.

(header,navigation, content, footer... etc)

once you have the idea on paper or in your head you can move onto coding.

design a "template" for now something like:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "https://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="https://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<title>Template 1</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

<link href="index.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"> <!-- Attached CSS -->

<style type="text/css">

/*Embedded CSS*/


	<div id="wrapper">
		<div id="header">My Templates</div>
		<div id="inner-wrapper">
			<div id="nav">


			</div><!--closes nav-->

			<div id="content">

				<h1>My Template</h1>

				<p>this is come content</p>

			</div> <!--closes content-->

		</div> <!--closes inner-wrapper-->

		<div id="footer">Some info</div>

	</div> <!--closes wrapper-->


for the attached css something like:
body {
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 12px;

#wrapper {
	border:1px solid black;
	margin:0px auto 0px auto;


#header {
	border:1px solid black;
	font-family:bookman old style;
	margin:20px auto 0px auto;


#inner-wrapper {
	border:0px solid black;
	margin:20px auto 0px auto;	

	border:1px solid black;


#nav li {
	margin:0px 0px 3px -35px;
	border:0px solid black;

#content {
	border:1px solid black;


#footer {
	border:1px solid black;
	margin:0px auto 20px auto;


.text-emphasis {


Please note: this is an existing example from an online source, this is just to get you started.

what you ask for cannot be done in a single tutorial. It may take you a lot of tutorials. Coding, designing, slicing.. just be patient and learn them step by step. :)

One place that gave me some great step-by-step instructions on getting my site up and running was this one. I'd advise doing what Lax said regarding getting it down on paper first so you will know what you want the actual site to look like, (how pages link with each other etc) as this is something I didn't do and had to spend a bit of time restructuring it a bit later.
Once you have a basic site up and running, post a link back to it here for the staff and helpers to look at it and give some pointers if you need any.
