Hi!!!

I took a Photoshop course recently. After that, the company I work for made me do their homepage. I was kinda used to Fireworks so I kept to it. I have been quite amazed by FW's ability to generate my web graphics quickly and without too much fiddling with options.

The easy part is that PS's keayboard shortcuts are maintained in FW!

The best part is still the page layout table export which works nice. In photoshop I had to go to all those menus before I could export my slices together or individually.

Do you prefer Photoshop for all your work or just for individual types like photography or web graphics?


Cheers to all

I prefer photoshop. But if I had to do some vector graphics it would probably be fireworks.

i prefer pshop as well, but i know that FW can do all of pshop's and illustrators functions all in one. Some people like that, but I'm just so used to using pshop. Kinda the "can't teach an old dog..."

Hey!

I had GIMP installed on my windows!! It's a cool soft, quite like photoshop. You just have to install a library, some plugins (to import/export and effects) and set some system variables! Besides this work, it's a very nice for a free soft!

How could I forget that one??!!

well...

i like fireworks and photoshop.
fireworks for its ease of use, and the ability to use vectors with ease is cool.
i started with fireworks.
now im moving on to photoshop, photoshop has much more to it than fireworks, i used fireworks alot, so i can pretty much say i know everything about it. unlike photoshop, it is just so big.
