Artisteer Standard Edition is an easy to use application that can help those with no relevant HTML, CSS or web design knowledge create their own professional-looking websites, blogs or wordpress themes. Starting with its tabbed interface and ending with web content and design suggestions, all the tools are there to help you build and publish a website or a blog easily and fast. As it is especially designed for inexperienced users, ease of use is one of the main characteristics of the software. The ‘Suggest Mode’ is one of its specific features, which offers you some design ideas for any layout element.
A collection of predefined layout templates is included, allowing you to adjust and customize your chosen one to get your website up and running in no time. Other design elements are also available, such as blocks, widgets, shapes, text boxes, tables, quotes, headlines and more. You can easily customize its layout, style and appearance (borders, colors, transparency, shadow, button texture etc.) and set the menu levels and links. The menu area ensures the website functionality and the connection between different pages.
The application comes with content styling options, as you can change the cell spacing, margins, padding, text style, fonts and colors. The application enables you to modify the background style (standard color fill, gradient or picture files) and apply additional effects to make the design even more original. The header and footer are also customizable, allowing you to change their position, add them slideshows or Flash content and modify their background image. Vertical menus, buttons, checkboxes, input and search forms, radio buttons and RSS buttons are other elements that you can include in your webpage template.
