Chapter 21. COMPARED TO PHOTOSHOP

Chapter 21. COMPARED TO PHOTOSHOP

Without question, Adobe Photoshop is one of the most successful computer graphics applications. It's hard to find anyone working with computer graphics who doesn't have a copy of Photoshop installed.

When Macromedia Fireworks was first introduced people wondered just how Macromedia intended to go up against the Photoshop juggernaut. Yet with each version of Fireworks more and more people are using the product—switching over from the combination of Photoshop and Adobe ImageReady.

One reason is the excellent integration between Fireworks and Macromedia Dreamweaver. Another reason is the vector drawing tools in Fireworks and object-oriented graphics make it easy to edit artwork.

This chapter is especially for those who have moved from Photoshop to Fireworks. It gives you side-by-side comparisons of the features in the two programs. You can look through this chapter for Photoshop features and learn what are their equivalent Fireworks features. Then you can skip back to previous chapters for more details.

Tip

Each of the figures displays the Fireworks items on the left and the Photoshop items on the right.
