  3. RocketTheme – TOPIC: Artwork as seen on RT (2/2)

Basically in short, because of #1, you can easily change/modify/move/adjust everything without having to do crazy selections etc. There are numerous sites out there that have posted challenges, ie, create an aqua button in fireworks and photoshop in fewest steps. Fireworks wins everytime.. for example aqua button in fireworks is something like: in photoshop its about 25 steps of selections, fills, masks, etc. And if you want to change the color, you have to repeat all the steps, whereas in fireworks you just change the fill of the 2 boxes and everything else (all the shadows automatically just work).

CS2 does these things. Making everything as a vector is simply choosing the right tools in Photoshop. I don’t have the artistic talent you do…but I still haven’t found anything that I couldn’t do in Photoshop/Illustrator. Mind you the learning curve for Photoshop is monumental. I’ve got in well over 2,000 hours of classes/tutorials and still learn new stuff all the time. To me Photoshop is more intuitive, but that is likely cause I know my way around it. Once the Alpha transsparencies are more universally accepted, Fireworks will likely get used more by me. I love the way you can work PNG files over other formats. It was actually your use of them in your templates that got me experimenting with them more. Source.
