According to me, Photoshop is not enough to become a web designer, A web designer need to have good skills on html, php, databases management, javascript/jquery, css and some things else...with photoshop, you can only design some bitmap graphics with no more choices.

There are people who still develop entire page using Photoshop but then there are also designers who do not want designers to do programming at all. However such cases are rare.

Designing skills and experience make you a web designer. Photoshop knowledge is not enough

No photoshop is not enough to be a designer. One must have the skills in HTML, CSS, jquery, Php, CMS etc. I am a web designer and know what skills a designer must have.

Agreed arron If a person is interested and has a passion then he/she can easily become a web designer in 6 to 7 months.

Nope, Adobe Photoshop is not enough to become a web designer. You have to know other tools too like CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrator.

I thought Adobe Photoshop, CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrator are only graphic tools, and they are one of tools for web designer, You only can design graphics with these tools without design a complete website with them, right? :D
A web designer needs to know more things like photoshop, CSS, HTML, PHP, ASP, Mysql,...etc

No never. Photoshop is not enough to become a web designer and you must learn coding as well.

You have to master in Dreamweaver being good website developer, But I think IDE are not much important you have designing and coding skills before being a good website developer.

No, it is not. A web designer should know about HTML, CSS and dream viewer too. A little bit coding is also necessary for a web designer.

Only photoshop skill is not enough for web designing. Photoshop is mostly used for logos, banners, etc to export web pages. Photoshop is used to create web layouts. But after completing this all process, you have to implement the design by hand-coding using CSS and HTML.

As I'm a web designer, I cannot tell you that Photoshop alone is enough. It is good for creating web layouts, but for other web graphics, you must have a good knowledge of other tools too.

Web design is a combination of design and web development, so design skills using photoshop are a huge part of it, but you still need to be able to implement your design into a functional website using at least html and css.

Being a web designer is not just focusing on just one software application. You can explore some other software application and make yourself familiar with its functions and you can use several application when it comes into editing. Photoshop is good but it is not gonna make you a good web designer. There are other apps that is better in some way than photoshop does. So explore more.

Hi there!

Photoshop is not enough but can be a good start. In designing a website you can start with the basic and I consider photoshop as one of the basics. However, you still need to learn programming skills and languages. Those codes will be the foundation of the website. With the layouts and designs photoshop will not be enough.

Still there will be a lot of tutorial all over the internet that can be useful to learn the basics.
