    Web design is the process of creating websites. It encompasses several unique facets, including webpage design, content creation, and image design. As the provisions web design and web-development are frequently used interchangeably, web design is technically a sub set of the broader category of internet development.

    Web sites are made using a markup language termed HTML. Web designers build pages using HTML tags which define the articles and meta-data of each web page. The layout and appearance of these elements within a webpage are typically defined with CSS, or cascading style sheets. Therefore, most websites include a combination of HTML and CSS that defines the way each page will appear in a browser.

    Some
    web design ers like to hand code pages (scanning HTML and CSS from scratch), but some use a"WYSIWYG" editor like Adobe Dreamweaver. This type of editor gives a visual interface for designing the page layout and the computer software automatically generates the corresponding HTML and CSS code. Yet another popular means to design sites is by using an content management system like WordPress or even Joomla. These services offer different website templates that may be utilised as a starting point for a new site. Web-masters may then add material and customize the design using a web-based interface.

    While HTML and CSS have been utilised to design the look and feel of a website, images needs to be generated separately. Therefore, graphic design can overlap with web design, since graphic artists often create images for use on the Web. Some graphics programs like Adobe Photoshop also incorporate a"Save for Web…" option that provides an easy means to export pictures in a format optimized for web publishing.
