Web Studio 5 is ideal for beginners who want to create websites, and this website creation software also boasts an excellent feature set for creating your own websites, whether professional or personal. The impressive features aren't difficult to use, either.

One of our favorite features of Web Studio is the drag-and-drop feature. While many software programs utilize this kind of feature to some degree, this website creation software takes full advantage of this capability. Within Web Studio, you can drag and drop images, buttons, templates, etc. Additionally, you can drag and drop any images and other objects from outside of the software right onto the Web Studio interface for quick and easy placement.

Although the templates in Web Studio are a little dated, they include professional looking templates as well as fun templates for creating a personal website. The software comes with 100 pre-installed and ready-to-use templates with a plethora of others available for download from Web Studio's Template Store on its website. The templates cover a wide variety of themes such as business, food, hobbies and many more. You can edit nearly everything on each template and customize them as you would like. However, it's impossible to view each template on a larger scale from the thumbnails without dragging it into a new project.

Web Studio includes tools to crop, resize, compress and resample images and graphics. This website creation software lets you create your own thumbnails of images, which is a nice touch to add on a website. You also have the ability to create animated GIFs for your website with Web Studio.

At first glance, it doesn't seem like Web Studio includes very many images pre-installed in the software, but if you simply double-click on the images in the image gallery, a wealth of others will open up. Web Studio 5 includes just over 100 images within the software, but the Template Store on Web Studio's website also offers additional images, which you can download at no cost.

In addition to being able to contact the company by phone or email, you can also reference the extensive user manual, the in-software help and the frequently asked questions or video tutorials on its website. Web Studio's website also offers additional resources with a learning center, a forum and a helpful tour of the software's features.

 

 

Web Studio Summary:
/10

We are impressed with Web Studio and the extensive features it includes, especially considering that it is designed for beginners and non-professionals. With little to no instruction, you will be able to create a professional looking website in no time and without any frustration. Web Studio 5 is perfect for the beginner just getting started, but the feature set it full enough for the intermediate designer who knows a thing or two about creating websites.
