This is a question I often get from people:
I would like to know if your tutorials are specifically designed to be compatible with only adobe software suites or are they also compatible with other free software alternatives for example gimp.
All of our videos are 100% compatible with the free alternatives out there because these programs all work in the same way.
… It’s like learning to drive a car, once you know how to drive a Ford, you can also drive a BMW.
So we teach with the industry mainstays like Dreamweaver and Photoshop (where you can practice with the free 30 day trials) … but the principles are the same on the Gimp (in the case of Photoshop) or with any other web design software, in the case of Dreamweaver.
Our main course for teaching web design though, does not use anything more than notepad (on PC) or TextEdit on Mac for many of the modules in the package. Off the top of my head, the following modules are some that use a simple text editor to teach:
- Beginners Web Design – HTML and CSS.
- Beginners PHP
- CSS Layouts and Lists
BTW, if you really want to learn web design, this is the package for you:
I hope that helps,
