Using Photoshop, Dreamweaver and Sharepoint together

Posted on 2012-08-30

I'm comfortable with Adobe and Dreamweaver and am wondering if its easy to make a webpage and then put it into Sharepoint?  I know Sharepoint has mapping abilities but I figure I can be faster using Photoshop to slice and export an html page and add an accordian and tabs in Dreamweaver then import it into a Sharepoint site page.  I'll learn mapping features later but I don't know about the accordian features if they are available in Sharepoint.  Really I don't want to tackle that stuff now so anyone know if it will work or are there issues doing this?  All posts are greatly appreciated!!!

    You can make a page in DW and then move it (and all supporting files) into SharePoint but if SharePoint is the final destination, you will probably be better off learning how to do everything through that software.

    You can make it work, but I predict headaches. Photoshop is notorious for generating weak code that is extremely bloated and nearly impossible to edit. Dreamweaver is a good bit better, but can only work with what is handed to it by Photoshop.

    IMHO, I would take jason's sage advice. Invest a bit of time learning SharePoint. Then use Photoshop to make whatever supporting graphics that are needed, instead of knocking your brains out trying to force a square peg into a round hole. It'll be a better investment.
