  • Neither. Photoshop and Illustrator are both graphics programs, not web design programs. If you want to stick to the Creative Suite, Dreamweaver is the web design program. Commented Jul 3, 2017 at 19:59

    @JanusBahsJacquet I would highly advise anyone to run away from dreamweaver as far as they can. It promotes bad coding habits.

    @JaneDoe1337 I was under the impression (though not from personal use, only hearsay) that it had improved vastly in that respect over the past five or so years. I’ve never used it myself; I only mentioned it as the option within the Creative Suite. Commented Jul 7, 2017 at 12:22

First off, this question is asking a large group of individuals to provide a concrete answer on a topic that relies heavily on an individuals personal preference, application skill set and workflow efficiency. All of those factors can vary drastically from artist to artist.

In a nut shell Metis already answered your question, the same result can be achieved in either Photoshop or Illustrator. Realistically, it comes down to which program you are most comfortable and efficient with while simultaneously knowing and understanding the essential design requirements of the project.

Try Sketch (Bohemian Coding) it's the current top software for designing websites, apps and interfaces it is based on CSS and have many plugins available, some of them allowing for export to HTML.

However, Sketch is a Mac only product and they have stated that they have no intention of ever providing a Unix or Windows product.


If you want to create mockups with interaction you can also try Adobe Experience Design, it's a new tool for rapid prototyping:

Go from idea to prototype faster with Experience Design CC (Beta), the first all-in-one cross-platform tool for designing and prototyping websites and mobile apps.


It's still in Beta but pretty easy to work with.
