    There's slight difference when they were launched. Adobe is the pioneer.

    If I was being brutally honest, these Photoshop vs Fireworks debates on multiple forums have started to be LOL material for me. The reason is that these are (abeit unnoticible by non-users) somewhat different.

    Fireworks is used primarily to create vector graphics - This is because of their crispness and their smaller size compared to similar bitmap images; this makes them effective at their purpose of web images (Remember that Macromedia Studio, despite its almost swiss-army status, is designed mainly for web development)

    Photoshop is used for exactly what is on the tin - Photos. Some bright spark however had learnt the potential of PS and so has become more than just editing photos. But its main use is still to create/edit bitmap graphics - Larger file size most times but looks a damn sight better.

    In effect, comparing FW & PS is like comparing shampoo and soap, when in fact both are used for different things.

    If you truly wanted to compared Macromedia and Adobe, try Fireworks vs Illustrator or Dreamweaver/Flash vs GoLive - Macromedia has no equivalent of Photoshop

    Very good point...I've been using the Macromedia and Adobe software for a fair while now (since DW2 and Illustrator 6 ) and i use Photoshop and Illustrator primarily for web graphics , never really touched on Fireworks at all...adobe has done me proud for all these years..and having Imageready bundled with photoshop is a bonus..strange i've never used Golive but i think Dreamweaver is the dogs anyway..jus' keeps getting better...

    In reply to the first question...Adobe was there years before Macromedia...
    Good idea this 'Internetworld'....lets keep it going!!!
    I got Booted from Xbox Scene Forum...Proud??...You Betcha!!
