Which one do you feel is best for web design and why?

Click on the “Search” button in the navigation at the top of this page and enter “Fireworks” into the field named “Search by keyword”. You’re not the first one to ask this, there are a couple of similar threads/questions about this already.

Photoshop is more powerful but fireworks is easier to learn. So depending on what you are trying to accomplish, I would choose Photoshop for detail work and Fireworks for less complicated jobs.

Totally disagree about the power of photoshop vs. fireworks. Photoshop has been around a lot longer than Fireworks, so you'll get a lot of people who "prefer" Photoshop to Fireworks. However, one of the great features of Fireworks is that it's native format is png. I think the best thing you can do is work with both and find the one that works best with your workflow.

I find photoshop to be great for the design, but i use fireworks to compress those images once done. Its compression is fantastic to get the smalest possible file sizes.

I think photoshop is more user friendly and its really very easy to use to design layouts and templates of your site. Even most of the web designer use photoshop to design a template first then move it to dreamweaver for further coding work.

Photshop is aimed squarely at the professional graphics designer or commercial artist/photographer. It is a great bit of kit, but I have stopped buying it (as I no longer need that level of ability). I now use fireworks, and find it adequate for most things. As I use drewamweaver, it slots in nicely as well.
