Skills You Need to Create Web 2.0 Websites

If you want to create your own websites, there are several

skills you need to get the job done. Some need a steep

learning curve, meaning that they are easy to learn, while

others need more effort in order to be executed properly.

We’ve listed down some of the skills needed in creating


1. Using a graphics editor

- this is important when you wish to create graphics for

your website. A good graphics editor can do jobs such as

simple photo editing to more complex ones such as creating

gradient and reflection effects. Photoshop and GIMP are

popular graphics editors used by designers.


- is another important skill any web designer needs to

have. HTML is a markup language, and just like other markup

languages, it tells the computer how the graphics and other

elements of the page will be displayed. Basic tags are

enough to let normal users get by, but knowledge of more

specialized tags are needed by those who want to build

better websites.

3. CSS

- is short for Cascading Style Sheets. Having a style sheet

for a website makes it easier for designers to design a

page by assigning values to tags such as those used in

paragraphs, lists and the likes. With a style sheet, a

style can be easily applied by using a variable on any part

of the site.

4. Flash

- is a program used for creating animations, games and

entire websites. Knowledge on how to use this is a must

among web designers. While the basic commands will be

enough for most users, Flash’s ActionScript gives people

more control over their creations.
