Adobe fireworks is all about creating handy leaflet style things or just creating new images. I'm not going to give it too much credit because to be honest i think its just a bit of a glorified bversion of paint. However if you put some effort into learning how to use it you can use it for more than paint.
Not only does it allow you to create images using paintbrushes, virtual pencils and pens as well as lines. But it also allows you to edit text using many filters and edit pictures using masks and blur tools
I found fireworks really easy to grasp the basics of however i still struggle when using some of the more advanced features, however i use it at school and certainly wouldnt pay the massive price tag associated with it
Adobe Fireworks CS5 software enables you to create expressive, highly optimized graphics for the web or virtually any device - from smartphones to kiosks to embedded displays. Produce websites, user interfaces, and rich prototypes that are editable in both vector and bitmap modes.
Quickly create wireframes from Fireworks templates. Add text, symbols, and imagery with the robust vector and bitmap toolset. Add pages and customize them quickly with Smart Guides, and export them as clickable PDF mock-ups for approval.
Create graphics with transparent alpha layers that will display correctly on any browser. Optimize your designs with Fireworks and export them as PNG-8 files for true cross-browser transparency.
Use vector objects and imported bitmaps to prototype rich Internet application (RIA) interfaces. Apply behaviors to objects to simulate interactivity. Export as Adobe AIR applications or FXG files for development in Adobe Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder.
