I am new to Fireworks and have worked with Photoshop. Photoshop is primarily a bitmap program, though you can work with vector graphics in it like you can in Fireworks. How does Fireworks work with both bitmap and vectors differently than Photoshop? Is it the same idea or is there a big difference with the way it handles this?
IMO Fireworks outshines PS in vector handling. In terms of the Pen tool, things are probably quite similar, but if you're creating vector shapes (custom or prebuilt) FW is a lot easier to work with.
