I wanted to know how can we create background textures and/or images for a website? Also, how can we create other images like logos and images and icons for websites? Please help!
There are all kinds of free to use images searchable at Wikimedia Commons: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page.
photoshop , gimp for images
illustrator for vector graphics
and icofx for favicons
What I use myself:
For different web design images > Adobe Photoshop
For logos > Adobe Illustrator
You can also use Corel Draw, or even Adobe inDesign for more advanced images.. (I can't speak a lot for those, since I use only photoshop and illustrator.. But, anyway, I'm pretty happy with them.. So U recommend them to you too..)
Try GIMP (www.gimp.org). It is similar to Photoshop but more simple and easy to work with (opinion). I use this for my designs (although not specific to logo designing).
http://www.colourlovers.com/ is awesome! This is what I use currently.
Yes, I went through this. Its awesome.
I know. Stumbled across the site, joined in immediately.
you can use Photoshop for images or you can use http://generatepattern.com/.
when u use photoshop make sure 2 optimise quality ... file size should be low
You can use Adobe Illustrator or Coreldraw for logos. And photoshop for images.
