Design vs front-end dev
This is a great blog post that details what designing a website in photoshop is, and why it's probably not a good idea: http://blog.teamtreehouse.com/psd-to-html-is-dead
Building a website from scratch, from pure code, will mostly likely result in a better website. You can of course still use Photoshop to wireframe and build a design you like, and in the end it's personal preference.

When you design from scratch is better to play first in Photoshop because allow you to preview in real-time and a good sketch is usefull. Starting from that premise, it make your code more easier when you develop for browser. Is more practicable because you can slice images without lossless pixels on slice and so forth. I encourage you to view Photoshop course.
