What is Fireworks? Mmmm..... This is tough one,but let me give it a shot. Macromedia Fireworks is supposed to be used to make web or multimedia graphics.Mainly web graphics though.This is the most flexible graphics programs I have ever laid my hands on. I haven't found too many things that it doesn't do. Click on the feature set list to get the skinny on everything that it does because there isn't too much that it doesn't do.
