Hello Friends,

If you've ever ventured down the perplexing world of Adobe's graphic software, then you're probable confused by the difference between Photoshop, Fireworks and Illustrator. After all, at a first glance, they seem more or less the same eh? Yet, there are some fundamental differences.
Fireworks is a graphics application, just like Photoshop… but the “target user” of the program is much different. The main reason that people pick Fireworks is because it’s built specifically for web designers. It’s lightweight, moves fast (even on older computers), and is easier to learn than Photoshop if you’re new to either program. Because it’s made for web designers, it’s more likely to grow over time to become more suited to this industry. It also means that if you’re just starting out, you won’t be bothered with any of the complex UI or steep learning curve that you might find in Photoshop.
Styles in Fireworks are very similar to CSS on a webpage. Each element can have a fill, stroke, font, and effect and then have it saved as a Style that can then be reused and modified the same way cascading stylesheets work. Edit the parent “style”, and all elements that are using that style are changed. This is particularly effective when dealing with multiple instances of text blocks across a site. Update one and you will update them all. Again – this is a great time saving tool.

Thanks and Regards,
Derren Brown

Darren brown as said it all, the main difference between these programs is that, firework is for web design, photoshop is for graphic design for print, web and on screen and its main mode of operation is based on pixel art, whereby illustrator is a graphic design software based on Vectors this means u can edit images and all with it but u can draw and paint with it.

d diff. is dat one is stronger at somtinz dan the others. this goes for the 3 app.
fotoshop is gud at editin images also gud at vectors but not super at it.
fireworks is gud for creatin html documents or web materials like slices etc
illustrator is super at vectors

basically most adobe products meant editin have basic tools for editin. so u mite observe a similarity in the editin panel
btw diff apps from d same vendor even atimes from different vendors. just try to get a gud review of wot
the app is meant for.
