    So it wasn’t the best investment you ever made? Well, if you ever want to open it a second time you’ll have some tutorials to work through.

    How does fireworks fare when compared with adobe photoshop ? More specifically, is it necessary to buy fireworks if you already have adobe photoshop? Especially since both are graphics software.

    I have not used fireworks and hence this query. All the same, you have a great collection of tutorials. Really nice.

    Fireworks and Photoshop are not the same even though they both work with graphics. One notable difference is that Fireworks is better for site layouts, although Photoshop can be used for this as well. My opinion is that Fireworks is not essential, but certainly has a purpose. This link from Smashing Magazine will give you a more in-depth look at Fireworks.

    Thanks for the set of tutorials. The one issue I have with fireworks is that the text sometimes doesn’t appear very smooth. Other than that, I love it.
