Fireworks is the graphics application I use for all my web design work and has been used to design all of my templates and websites including this site. It is the best software for creating professional and attractive graphics for websites and interactive media.

The unparalleled support for working and combining vector and bitmaps graphics with realtime effects enables you to create scalable graphics and website mockups in minutes. Not only that, Fireworks offers a wide range of formats to export to and produces images with far smaller filesize compared to other applications ensuring your website loads fast and looks great!

I would never trade Fireworks for anything else and comparisons to Photoshop are in my opinion just in unsuitable. If you do work with creating interfaces for multimedia applications and graphics for websites, Fireworks excels. When it comes to photo editing, painting and drawing on the computer, a combo of Photoshop and Painter is a better choice. Product Description
