In order to maintain a website, two essential tools are needed: Adobe Contribute and Adobe Dreamweaver. In addition to these two tools, Adobe Photoshop is also essential for maintaining images and graphics.
Adobe Contribute is a powerful content management system for the web. It allows multiple specified users to add or remove text, pages, documents, images, videos, and audio on your website. Contribute functions like a web browser with a built in word processor. Once you have a website established, you, and anyone you specify, may have Contribute installed on their computers to help manage your website.
Adobe Dreamweaver is a web editor typically used by our more advanced users, or users who want more freedom editing their web pages. Dreamweaver allows you to edit every aspect of your web page for better control of your design. If Adobe Contribute does not provide you with enough functionality to edit your page, you may wish to use Adobe Dreamweaver.
Adobe Photoshop is a graphics editing program, or image editing software that allows you to create and manipulate visual images on the computer. Editing features in the program help to create and manage visual images for Internet, print, and other new media disciplines. To begin creating a Photoshop project, start Photoshop CS6 and follow along with the steps below.
