Adobe Fireworks vs Photoshop & Illustrator

Consumed => “A Case for Adobe Fireworks against Photoshop and Illustrator” by Andy Killen on Specky Boy.

Left a comment…

Great article and too many good comments. I’ve been contemplating FW for a bit now. This might be what pushes me over the edge. Thanks.

Since I’m here, a couple things to add…

=> While I don’t mean to offend anyone (with what might be common knowledge) but, Adobe offers a free trial of FW: http://ca10.us/b5qdE7

=> We all work with what we are comfortable with. Sometimes for better or for worse. Ultimately we should be using the right tools for the right job. I believe Andy’s main point is: if your focus on is web then consider not hammering with a screwdriver. But maybe it was the title that set the wrong tone?

=> That said (as someone else did note), those signing the checks are often more interested in the means, than the ends. And yes, quite often to their own detriment.

=> Finally, anyone care to comment on using FW as their primary tool and then Gimp and/or Inkscape in the rare instance they have to go offline?
