Has anyone got any pros and cons on using Adobe Photoshop to create and manage a web site? Looking for good and bad. I feel like we are (have) outgrowing Publisher, but I'm not sure. Dreamweaver seems like too big of a step.

You do NOT want to use a photo editing application to create a website, in
my opinion :). And it would be rather difficult and would require TONS of
hand coding. If you are familiar with Publisher and need to go to the next
step, FrontPage would be your best bet. The big thing here is that the
interfaces are shared between FrontPage and Publisher, so you will be very
familiar with many features, menus, interface and the help system.

In either case, be prepared to revamp your site because the HTML produced by
Publisher will not be 100% friendly when carried over to FrontPage, or
Dreamweaver for that matter. Dreamweaver is an excellent choice as well, but
will not be as easy to move into as FrontPage.

If you want to try an Adobe product check out Go Live!. It was meant for the
job. I think you can even download a trial copy.
It will be a big change with a much steeper learning curve-but you get what
you invest time in.

dan5606,
Yes, for graphics editing not web design, as Brian mentioned there is no real way to use it as a to use it as a design program.
We used it with Adobe Go Live for our sites, and are now redesigning with Front Page 2003. FP offers many more easier to use functions than previous versions.
Split screen view, table and cell layout wizards along with others. In general, easy to use if you already know Publisher to a degree...
