Remember that first time you got into the web industry as a professional? Speaking from personal experience, it must be a pretty amazing experience for anyone. Not only are you joining a community of friendly people who are not trying to destroy everyone in their path to grow their own brand, but there are tons of great resources right at your fingertips. These resources of course being the amazing books, fonts, frameworks, knowledgeable forum members, and of course blog articles that really shape and change the culture of the web profession. Although all those resources are important, without great blog articles, how are up and coming designers going to learn about all of them?

When starting as a designer, you might encounter some issues along the way, especially in the relationships you develop with your clients. This happens mainly because the clients quite often have the wrong idea of what we actually do and think that “anybody can design a website”. In their opinion it is as easy as opening Photoshop and drawing something, then writing three lines of code and there you go, you have developed a website.

Photoshop is still one of the most complex photo editing tools out there. Though the web is loaded with Photoshop tutorials and people have become accustomed to using Photoshop, there is this section of digital art lovers that are afraid of Photoshop. Somehow it seems over stuffed with options. It was to win over this genre of end-user that various web-based applications popped up and slowly became famous. We have already covered plenty
of such tools
but somehow the list seems to be growing exponentially. This article will list some of the new (and some that were missed earlier) tools that make our lives exciting. I will start with web-based tools for designers and then include few A.V. based tools to keep you intrigued.
