MAGIX Web Designer is a web design app created specifically to avoid the more technical side of website creation.

MAGIX Web Designer works on the WYSIWYG principle, so that what you see on the screen in front of you is exactly how your website will appear on the Internet. This makes it much easier to track changes and monitor your progress. The first time you open MAGIX Web Designer, a practice document will load automatically. It is a fully functioning website template that you can also view online, and it works like a cross between a tutorial and a wizard. I would heartily recommend dedicating some time to this, practicing all the steps and techniques it details. Once you've finished, creating your own website with MAGIX Web Designer will be a breeze.

MAGIX Web Designer is particularly attractive for beginners because it is so simple to use. There is excellent help and tooltips, and you can modify the various parts of the website really easily, dragging and dropping items and modifying text as you would with a normal editor like Word.

Of course, MAGIX Web Designer offers more advanced options too, but you don't need to tackle these until you master the basics. Once you have a template, you'll learn how to add images, buttons, .GIF animations and other features to your MAGIX Web Designer webpage. When you're finished, there is a preview function and full publishing capabilities, so going live with your creation will be just as easy as creating it was.

MAGIX Web Designer makes designing your website a piece of cake.
