…or how I learned to stop worrying and love Fireworks.
Photoshop has been my go-to tool for many years now. Like a trusty sidekick it was reliable and always helped me get the job done. It was the Robin to my Batman, the Hobbes to my Calvin. But there was always another other program lingering off in distance, a mysterious one I had minimal first-hand experience with; little did I know that it would soon forever change my workflow.
Don’t get me wrong, Photoshop is a great tool, but when it comes to building and managing web comps, Photoshop is just the wrong choice. It’s akin to using a spoon to cut a steak–it’s simply the wrong tool for the job, and although it may work eventually, the experience leaves much to be desired. Below are my top 10 reasons why I’ve decided to use Fireworks over Photoshop as my primary web comp tool.
