Simply put Adobe Fireworks is an intuitive and easy to use program to create graphics for small additions on websites to constructing entire website’s look and feel. It has become a web graphics staple to all professionals in the field and is quite frankly easy to use for people who may not be ask professional. That is, it as easy to learn as it is to use.
Being that Fireworks has been around for about a decade now, the latest updates seem to be pretty great and just what users wanted/needed. One may now integrate into Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as Adobe Flex and Bridge. There is improved bitmap scaling and layer management. People are saying that it is still the best web graphics tool around, and has now made it easier for prototyping with its compatibility with other programs.
