    I have a great suggestion, the best tools that you can get is to have first the know how and then you will have everything for free.
    So I've found Website In a Day Workshop, is suitable for beginners and novices as well as those who already have some experience with web development. It is a hands on, interactive training and guides you through a step by step process to create a personal or business website of your own, you will create your own website in a single day! Then you will have all the resources for free, Wordpress is a free structure, templates, plugins, etc. You only need to have the know how. Check this one:
    http://in-a-day.com.au
    or check also this one

    I hope it helps

    Design
    GIMP in similar to Photoshop and is free. But I use a mix of Photoshop and Illustrator for the design.

    Development
    Wordpress and Dreamweaver.

    Other Tools
    I would also add all-free-downloads.com to the list of tool, its free graphic illustrator files for editing.
    I also use DaFont for fonts.

    I have a somewhat unconventional style of designing sites, I start on paper and then build the CSS structure, then go about populating the elements with relevant images created in photoshop - I actually find it saves me a lot of time, a lot of people find the exact opposite to be the case.

    For a while I was using Notepad++ as my primary editor, but as someone who also uses Linux I got sick of switching between Notepad++ on windows and Geany on Linux, never liked Bluefish (it's far too ugly imo) and Aptana is uber bloated so for the last few days I've been using Komodo Edit as my editor, it's cross platform which is a big plus for me, and the Komodo IDE (paid software) looks impressive and it'll definitely be something I consider as I get more and more into developing applications.

    Almost all my sites are built on Drupal, I love that CMS, and my other most usefull tool has to be Chrome and the myriad of extensions that I use to develop sites.

    *Edit*

    I should also mention the websites "net.tutsplus.com" and "fontsquirrel.com", they're extremely useful resources.

    youíll find the five web design tools that garnered the most votes.

    5. Fireworks



    Adobe Fireworks is a commercial raster and vector graphics editor hybrid from Adobe thatís available for the Mac and Windows operating systems. Designed specifically for web designers (unlike Photoshop), Fireworks brings you a plethora of tools and options that make full web layout prototyping a breeze.

    Among its notable features are: "slices" for slicing and dicing a design mockup into HTML/CSS for rapidly creating prototypes (though you should avoid using auto-generated source code for the end-build), the ability to package an entire site design as a PDF with clickable components for interactive and impressive site prototypes, and optimization tools for making your web graphics as lightweight as possible.

    4. Dreamweaver


    Adobe Dreamweaver is a commercial application for web development thatís available for the Mac and Windows operating systems. Its featured-packed suite of tools and options include: syntax highlighting and very smart Code Hinting, a built-in FTP client, project management and workflow options that make team work effortless, and Live View Ė which shows you a preview of your source code. Dreamweaver tightly integrates with other popular Adobe products such as Photoshop, allowing you to share Smart Objects for quick and easy updating and editing of graphics components.

    3. Panic Coda


    Panic Coda is a shareware web development application for the Mac OS X operating system. It seeks to reduce the amount of applications (such as an FTP client, CSS editor, a version control system, etc.) you need to develop websites and to improve your teamís workflow. Codaís one-window web development philosophy uses a tabbed interface for text editing, file transfers, SVN, CSS, and even "Books" which embeds web books that are searchable (it comes with The Web Programmerís Desk Reference but you can add your own).

    Itís simple and intuitive interface allowed Coda to garner the Apple Design Awards Best Mac OS X User Experience in 2007.

    2. Photoshop


    Adobe Photoshop is a very popular commercial graphics editor available for the Mac and Windows operating system. Created for professional photographers and designers, it is the ideal application for manipulating images and creating web graphics. Photoshop has all the necessary tools and options you need such as: Filters Ė which automatically adds effects to your image or a selected section of your image, extensibility and automation with Brushes, Actions and Scripting, and workflow enhancement features like Layer Comps and the Revert option.

    1. Firebug


    Firebug is a free, open source in-browser web development tool for the Firefox web browser. Itís many features include: on-the-fly HTML and CSS editing for tweaking or debugging, a Console for logging, analyzing and debugging JavaScript, and an intuitive Document Object Model (DOM) inspection tool to help you quickly see how the elements of a web page relates to one another.

    Firebugís popularity is so immense itís one of the few Firefox extensions that have its own extensions (like YSlow and FirePHP)!

    Fireworks is great for creating amazing graphics for your website. You can even use it to develop a completely functional simply static HTML website.

    Photoshop is a complex ass toughie.
