maver2,

I am going to recommend Artisteer (http://www.artisteer.com/)

They are pretty much the standard.

Cheers,
LHerrou

I do have Artisteer, but

1. it does not have very high quality graphic patterns.

2. And it is good only for Joomla. For example I think that those guys who create templates on www.joomla24.com do not use only Artisteer, right?

For example I do not believe that these kind of stunning webs were created by Artisteer:

http://www.pre.cz/
http://www.astemplates.com/content/asj44/index.php 
http://joomavatar.com/demos/templates/j25/avatar_simple/

I meant something like to create the template as a one page graphic file (or pdf) and then to use other tools to cut it into pieces to fit it into Joomla or Prestashop.

Usually that work is done in Photoshop or similar graphics programs, and the images and CSS are hand-edited.
