Adobe Fireworks Comments

None of these are really alternatives

Comment by maakbow
about Adobe Fireworks Feb 2013

None of the listed software is really an alternative to adobe fireworks. As well as a bitmap editor, Firworks works with vectors but render them as pixels specifically as a tool for screen design. Also having reusable "symbols", "pages" and a range of prototype export tools, sets this tool apart as a specific design tool for pixel based interfaces.
