    Whenever i use software to design any webpages the code is too messy and bloated. Designing wordpress are pretty similar to designing regular pages. Treehouse has a great article about how to design a wordpress theme with twitter bootstrap.

    Check out a program called Divine Project. I hear its pretty good. It converts a PSD to a wordpress theme. Im thinking of giving it a try cuz they are rediculously complicated to make. At least from my little experience making them. Im more of a developer than anything. So yeah. Try that. Good luck :D

    Edit

    So you got me thinking and I just went to google and typed in PSD to wordpress, This was the first thing that popped up in a wordpress forum post or whatever

    Looks kinda cool. Ill be trying it right now haha.

    with artisteer you can make easily good looking wordpress themes.
    but as already mentioned, the code is not that clean as when coded by hand

    There are many theme frameworks out there, and the one that I could do nearly everything I could amagine with drag and drop is PageLines FrameWork. It's very complicated at first and need little longer learning curve, but when you comfortable with it, it worth every dollar you spend with there expensive pricing structures.

    No software will comes close as coding it by hand, pick an easy framework and learn it. After that, you can create any theme that you want. It'll be added to your skill too.

    But if you're feeling lazy :p Here's some of the frameworks that has drag and drop feature
    pagelines
    headway themes
    ultimatumtheme
    iThemes Builder
    Elegant Themes Builder
    Visual Composer for WordPress
    Instabuilder
    Ether Content Builder
    aqua page builder
