Well, assuming you know the following:

HTML
CSS
Javascript
Basic graphic design in either Photoshop, Gimp, Fireworks or some other program of the like.

You can dive straight into making a website design (also called a "skin"). Basically, you fire up your graphics program and make something that looks nice. It can pretty much look like whatever given today's flexibility in websites and design (thanks mostly to CSS).
Then you need to cut the image up into smaller, separate images which you will use whn coding the skin.
After you have the skin images "sliced" you put the entire thing back together using HTML and CSS.

If you want your site to be anything more than a static item which you must manually edit you will need to know at least one of the following:

PHP (common)
C#
Ruby on Rails (common)
Python
ASP (common)

I have marker to most commonly used server-side languages used for making websites.

From that point you would build your back end instead of placing content on your site you would change it into a template (easy to do with at least PHP) and change the content you place in the template based upon what you want to use. Databases are commonly used for dynamic content.

Now, if you don't know HTML, CSS, Javascript, etc. I suggest going to the following sites:

www.w3schools.com
www.tizag.com

They have a lot of tutorials on everything you need to know to design websites.

If you want tutorials on graphics:

www.gimptalk.org
http://www.pxleyes.com/blog/
http://www.loreleiwe...forum/index.php
http://psd.tutsplus....gory/tutorials/

Hope that helps.

First of all i would like to say thanks you for your feedback. It is really precise but useful from your comments.

I have some knowledge related to HTML, CSS PHP and MySQL i have do not know so much related to Javascript. At the mean time, i set myself to do one project as my case study. I have gone through this project for almost one month already but i get some deadlock which make me feel awkward of adapting new skill that is why i am trying to look for help from this community.

However, i would like to post my codes which i have problems. I hope you feel happy to guide me through.

BRAVO BETAWAR!!! :^: :)
