Tools You can Use in Creating a Web 2.0 Design
Although Web 2.0 design is different from its predecessors,
practically the same programs are still used in creating
them. Newer versions of course have different features, but
these programs remain essentially the same.
If you would like to create your own website designs, here
are some tools that you will need.

program used for graphics editing just like Photoshop.

difference? GIMP is for free and Photoshop is not.

logos, typography and other images. Just like other
programs of its kind, it allows images to be resized

graphic designers. It has been used by professionals since
its release in 1989.
