    I always use Fireworks for most, then image editing stuff I do in Photoshop. So, I use both.

    I think the vast majority of people that use Photoshop use Photoshop mainly because they don't have or can't use Fireworks.

    And yes, Fireworks is still very much a part of CS4.

    I was teaching how to use both applications. I prefer Fireworks (especially for Export mode, making images transparent quickly, ...) that I consider simpler for those who just has started...
    Read the thread, and you will see that the it's a matter of personal preference.

    Fireworks is easier to learn. But Photoshop is more industry standard.

    I'll vote for fireworks.

    I have used both Photoshop & Fireworks. I find Photoshop quite clumersome to use and it takes a while to learn how to use it correctly. Whereas, I find Fireworks very intuative and it just does what I expect it to and does it well. It is perfect for wireframing & designing websites (thats what it is built for).

    I tend to use Fireworks for images as well. Especially its batch tool, which is very good. I do use Photoshop sometimes if I need to do some advanced Photo stuff, but that is rare (and a headache).

    fireworks!
    is much simpler and faster, i mean you can work faster, you can control the size of the squares, spacing, etc. whether photoshop if you need something with a specific size you have to use illustrator or make a new image or stuff like that!

    Here are three that I like to use, being both an opensource fan and general alround tightwad who likes to keep his coin in his pocket and away from Adobe:

    Serena Prototype Composer, fairly handy 'free' requirements visualization and prototyping tool.

    Pencil an opensource tool (Firefox addon) for making diagrams and GUI prototyping.

    GIMP, no need to say more, other folks have already pointed it out.

    Another one that you might consider looking at is Denim from Washington University, however please note that it has been designed with a pen interface in mind.

    thanks for posting the links to the articles. they're interesting and i agree with aspects of both of them. i have skipped photoshop when creating more simplistic designs but like to use photoshop to push myself with more creative designs that i then have to work out how to create using css and html. i find this to be a great way to learn new skills.

    I like using the traditional developer's toolbox:

    Photoshop, Text Editor, Web Browser.

    Pen and Paper (if necessary).

    I use fireworks CS4 on a daily basis to mock up websites for clients.
    The key factor with fireworks CS4 that I enjoy so much is that you can export your work to a Xhtml/CSS standards complient website and then work with it in DW or notepad.

    I am using Photoshop CS3, and i have never used fireworks, so i can't say which one is best. But after reading these posts, i will definitely put fireworks near the top of my list on things to learn in the new year!!!!
