I picked Joomla and I hope someone can look over my shoulder...

I am now doing my first website from scratch; these are my questions:

Can I use paint.NET to create the website instead of Photoshop or dreamweaver?

My site is mainly video and photos.

Do I need any other software?

I am very good at following directions I am just not sure how to begin.

Thank you,

No. Paint.NET is an image manipulation tool. In order to make a website you need to do some coding and therefore need an HTML editor (notepad+, PSPad are examples). You can code in Word or Notepad but these are minimalist approaches.

Paint.NET can be used to create the graphics for your website, but hanging the content (images and text) together requires knowledge of (X)HTML (and CSS!).
