Graphic Design Software - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Could someone please point me in the right direction for decent graphic design software. I'd like to do more than Dreamweaver allows. Example: If you look at [url]www.msn.com[/url] under their logo (Butterfly) you'll see a strip that goes up at an angle and then across the page. Does anyone know any design software/tools I could purchase to create this type of graphic? I can't seem to find any! I don't fancy paying for a Graphic Designer!...

    In terms of image creation and image editing, there isn't much Photoshop
    cannot do.
    Photoshop is more than capable of editing and drawing (although Illustrator
    is a better choice for full vector drawing).

    In the case of this thread, I would heartily recommend Fireworks.

    Clarification: Photoshop itself can't be used to create roll-overs,
    html, etc. It's ImageReady, which ships with Photoshop, that does that.

    Agreed, although I would not use IR's or Fireworks' in-built functions for
    my HTML or rollovers.

    I create my artwork in Fireworks and/or Photoshop, import it into
    Dreamweaver then add the rollovers, HTML, interactivity etc in Dreamweaver

    Probably, but I wouldn't use an image editor to create html anyways.
