If you want to start web designing then you will need a software such as Adobe Photoshop that allows you to create the graphics and also it will let you to arrange these graphics on the page in a way that will be useful for your website. You will also need an HTML editor like Macromedia Dream Weaver that is not only used to create and edit a web page but also enable you with some great features and tools to aid you in your design efforts. And last, you will need an FTP type program that allows you to update or upload all the information to the host server.
I am agree with your points. Adobe Photoshop is one of the best web design tools whichever i have seen. Dreamweaver is somewhat lacking behind Adobe Photoshop but it's also a best web design tool.
