  • Ideally the project website will be constructed using dedicated website authoring software such as Dreamweaver, WSIWYG, iWeb or NVU(Free)
  • Much less ideally , standard office applications such as Word, Publisher and PowerPoint may be used.
  • Animation software such as Flash can be used to create entire websites as well as animations.
  • Image editing software such as Fireworks is essential for preparing photographs for the website.
  • FTP software such as FileZilla (Free) is useful.
