This page contains references to some tools you can use to
create web sites.
BBEdit by Bare Bones Software
is a powerful Programmer's Editor for OS X.
BBEdit was the primary tool used to build this web site.
Pixelmator is an image editor
specifically for Mac OS X. While not in the same league as Adobe Photoshop,
Pixelmator has a beautiful user interface, and many of its filtering features
make use of the Mac's Core Image framework to produce beautiful image effects.
If you are unfortunate to be sentenced to work on a PC, Paint Shop Pro from
Jasc Software (since acquired by Corel) is a pretty
reasonable and functional alternative to Adobe PhotoShop. In the dark ages prior to Mac OS X, I used
Paint Shop Pro to create and edit many of the graphics on this web site.
