What site editing tool is best.

We are using yahoo site builder currently, but it can not except psd format files for uploading to the internet. we are wondering which site builder or editing tool works best? Is dream weaver a good one? Or is there something better out there, we already have our design we just need it edited to the web. We currently have a free trial of adobe photo shop cs3. So we can pretty much do what ever we need to do to the file itself any help is greatly appreciated.

go to http://www.download.com to the section on FTP software. Read the reviews. Some are free. I use "coffee cup". Marc

Thanks we downloaded the free trial and are now trying to figure out how to do it. We are just having trouble getting the hang of it and to figure out how to edit the look off the site without effecting the html we already have because we are ranked very high already.

So pretty much just just trying to copy and paste our psd files in.

Ok we went out and bought microsoft office publisher and so far so good. Looks like it is working just the way we need it to. Just have to figure out how to get the files to stay after we drag and drop them over each other.

After you drag & drop to the "web host" side of your coffee cup software, you need to click on "save to web"--which actually saves your file now to the server at your web hosting company. Hope that helps. Marc

One more thing. Make sure you save your files to your hard drive just so you have a back up copy. I switched packages at my hosting company and did not get my files saved. Fortunately, google keeps cached copies of your files and was able to recover.

I think one off the best FREE editors is SeaMonkey.
