Web design is the process of creating internet sites . It encompasses a number of unique aspects, including page layout, content creation, and image design. As the terms web design and web-development are often used interchangeably, web design is technically a sub set of the wider group of internet development.

Sites are made using a markup language identified as HTML. Web designers build webpages using HTML tags that specify the material and metadata of each webpage. The layout and appearance of these elements in just a webpage have been usually defined with CSS, or cascading style sheets. So, most internet sites include a combination of HTML and CSS that defines each page will appear in a browser.

Some web designers prefer to hand code pages (scanning HTML and CSS from scratch), while others use a"WYSIWYG" editor such as Adobe Dreamweaver. This type of editor provides a visual interface for designing your page design and the software automatically creates the corresponding HTML and CSS code. Another popular way to design web sites is with a content management system such as WordPress or even Joomla. These services offer different website templates that can be utilised as a startingpoint for a new website. Webmasters may then add articles and customize the layout using a web-based interface.

While HTML and CSS have been utilised to create the look and feel of a site, graphics must be created separately. For that reason, graphic-design can overlap with web design , since graphic designers often create images for use on the Web. Some graphics apps like Adobe Photoshop also include a"Save for Web..." option that provides a simple way to export pictures in a format optimized for web publishing.
