Fireworks or Photoshop, what do you prefer for image manipulation?
 
I'm sure they both have their uses, but I don't know much about either, although I've messed with Photoshop a little.

Which one do you prefer? What are their differences? Do they compete with or compliment each other?

Thanks.

Depends on what you want to do. Photoshop is the most powerful program out there for image manipulation and can do just about anything. Fireworks on the other hand is geared more towards web graphics. Photoshop comes with imageready, Adobe's answer to Fireworks and works just as well. I haven't used Fireworks in probably 3 years.

About the same time frame for me also. Photoshop and ImageReady make a pretty formidable team. I use them both almost exclusively now.

Gimp
I can use it for free, legally
plus I rarely do any real manipulation

Answer "C", Ulead PhotoImpact. It is 95% as powerful as Photoshop, easier to use, and substantially cheaper.

Pfft. I use an oscilliscope and a logic probe to manually send commands to the IDE chain that cause the files I want to change to be changed in the ways I want them changed.

I've been using Photoshop since version 5 so I'm used to the interface and commands more.
