    Ben Nadel said: "I think we need to come up with a definition for "photo manipulation." I only say that because it seems like photo manipulation is what sets Photoshop apart." Photoshop is not just a photo manipluation program. Go to CGTalk and check for example the 2D art section: http://forums.... read more »

    > My blog is not about photo editing, nor does it appeal to photo editors You compare a web design tool with an image editor. All I'm trying to do is convincing you that you're comparing apples to oranges. > I don't know where exactly you get this idea that I am only comparing PS and FW whe... read more »

    > am not sure why you keep bringing Dreamweaver into this discussion? In case you dind't know Ben; both Fireworks and Dreamweaver were developed to help people creating web pages. > Dreamweaver is a bloated piece of poop Just yelling "Dreamweaver is a bloated piece of poop" doesn't give yo... read more »

    > Ha ha ha, I didn't even know you could use ACDSee to edit images :) I use ACDSee as my primary image viewer, but I think the most I have ever done for editing is rotating the images. It shows how little you know: http://www.acdsee.com/products/photoeditor/topfeatures So before you try to mak... read more »

    I've said this in other topics too; comparing Photoshop with Fireworks is like comparing apples with oranges. Photoshop's main focus is image editing, Fireworks tries to imitate Photoshop, Illustrator and Dreamweaver all at the same time, but doesn't excel in any of these areas. It reminds me a bit ... read more »

    > I might agree with this. Why "might"? > I would also say that it works the other way as well - Not many web developers would use Photoshop for web development. Totally unrelated to the issue we're discussing. You made the comparison between image editing and not web design. But since you ... read more »

    Personally I think Fireworks is close to a dead end. I haven't seen any major updates in the last 2 versions, for me that's a sign of times to come. Neither have I met many people who use Fireworks, Photoshop/Dreamweaver however seems to be a totally different story. ImageReady is gone and Fireworks... read more »

    "Fireworks has more pixel-level control than Photoshop. For example, if you draw a shape in Photoshop, there is no way to stop the edges from being anti-aliased. FW is designed with pixels in mind." You quite obviously never intensively used Photoshop Ben, otherwise you wouldn't make comments like ... read more »

    With all respect guys, but comparing Fireworks with Photoshop is comparing like apples with organges. Sure, basically they're both image editors, but Photoshop is pure image editor per se, while Fireworks is mainly focused on web design. Not many photographers would use Fireworks for image editing... read more »
