Got Photoshop, Then Use It

As a web or a graphic designer you don’t need to use Photoshop, there are many other cool editors which can be your weapon of choice.

For prototyping and making mockups in my opinion Fireworks rules but some things are missing and than Photoshop comes to rescue.

960 grid system is a great way to design websites. I don’t use it always but I would sure recommend it. First thing first, what the heck is a 960 grid system? Well go to 960.gs and get your copy. It is a tool (or bunch of tools) that will help you out in making your web site look professional and clean. Grid system is awesome for fast website prototyping. It will make your website layout bulletproof, with just the right gutter and spacing of elements.
