Why use Adobe Fireworks given Adobe appears to be focusing mainly on Photoshop? • File size - fireworks pngs even complex multi-page documents are very small • Flexibility - multiple states, pages, animations in one file • Implementability - easily coded. • Vector on pixel grid - most vector apps don't care about pixels, or don't give you the fine grained pixel snapping absolutely necessary when making icons and UIs that will be used at different resolutions.

Once again I am so glad to have a dual monitor setup in my office. My main monitor is my large Apple display and my 2nd is a large flat screen Viewsonic I picked up for $40 at Goodwill. In reviewing tomorrow's Illustrator lesson, I have the finished version of the file on the right as I work on my edit on the main monitor. Having 2 monitors has been a regular part of my work now for several years and when I have to use only 1 monitor (while teaching), it always seems so limited!

I see the world through Adobe eyes: Sign says "Fireworks" and I think "greatest web graphics program ever built." Sign says PSW and I think "Photoshop World" Sign says "Hot Links" and I think about linking vs embedding. Just drove past "Tom Green" street. Help me!
