  1. 1. <ul><li>Four Applications to Help you </li></ul><ul><li>Design and Develop your Website </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Too many website novices try and develop their website using a live environment, with no specific tools, other than the occasional use of a graphic application. </li></ul><ul><li>This article covers four free applications that will save you time, as well as helping you produce a more professional website. </li></ul><ul><li>However if you don’t have the experience or time, why not hire our website development team in Hull to help you? </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>We have years of experience and hiring our website services, means you can focus on other matters, such as running your business! </li></ul><ul><li>Hire our Hull website developers, to create your website. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Gedit or Notepad++ </li></ul><ul><li>Using an advanced text editor might be old school, but still has a place in modern day website development and design. </li></ul><ul><li>From finding and replacing colour codes on mass in style sheets, edit a template file, else programming in PHP amongst other uses, you need a text editor that is more than editing plain text and saving. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>If you are linux user you should check out gedit, and if you are a Microsoft Windows user Notepad++ is the leader of the pack. </li></ul><ul><li>Between the two, notepad++ has the edge, but whether using gedit or notepad++, they can save you time and help you create more polished results. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) </li></ul><ul><li>A cross platform image editing application. It isn’t comparable to Adobe Photoshop, but for many website developers it is just fine. </li></ul><ul><li>It covers all the basic, plus more advanced features. </li></ul><ul><li>It is especially useful when you want to optimise your images and make them web friendly. Such as changing between formats, resizing and cropping. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>FileZilla FTP Client </li></ul><ul><li>A powerful cross platform FTP client, that takes the pain out of managing files and folders via FTP. </li></ul><ul><li>The ability to store your FTP details in its manager means, that if you are a developer you can quickly work across multiple websites, plus the site manager file can easily be moved cross platform. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>XAMPP </li></ul><ul><li>Instead of developing using a live server, you can use XAMPP if you are a Microsoft Windows user. </li></ul><ul><li>The package takes the pain out of setting up Apache, MySQL and PHP, meaning very quickly you can be developing on your local network, which can bring reduced development costs, speed up the development process and take the reliance of needing an always on internet connection to develop a website. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Hire Neogain! </li></ul><ul><li>Instead of trying to develop and design a website yourself, hire Neogain to be your UK website development team! </li></ul><ul><li>Hire our Hull website services , to develop and design your website. </li></ul>
