    I don't know about the need for Photoshop and Dreamweaver. If that's all you've ever used, fine, but there are loads of open-source (essentially free to use) software out there.

I think at one point or another I posted a reply, much similar to this, but I'll post it again for ya.

There are two things you need to learn for designing a website from start to finish. First is an understanding of Photoshop and a knowledge of web design and layout. The second is a knowledge of HTML, CSS, possibly some Javascript and Dreamweaver (Recommended).

Once you've understood those elements, you can start designing your website in Photoshop. This step is essentially crucial, because in order to design a website, you need to know how it's going to look! In the web design world, your website designed in Photoshop is called a mockup, or if you want it's called a blueprint.

Once you have your mockup created, you can start designing your website in HTML, CSS and Javascript. Dreamweaver will allow you to code your website and help organize it as well as uploading it to the internet via FTP (File Transfer Protocol).

Hope this helps you a bit!

You could create a static website with little more than a rudimentary understanding of HTML and CSS. There are also many template-driven free hosted (and self-hosted) packages available. You'll find that these packages/sites will produce a better result than anything you could do yourself until you gain enough experience with markup and styling.
