I don't want to shell out $300 for fireworks just yet, so I am playing around with inkscape and gimp.
I am using these tools to create some web graphics, things like buttons, those thin image slices with gradients for background images etc.
The only thing I don't like or seems limiting is the ability to only create a single gradient per object.
Am I missing any 'must-have' features that would warrant buying fireworks?
Gimp seems to have good file extension format also...
Seriously though, many of the features are made with web graphics in mind. There is panels specifically for buttons, tiles, slicing... etc.
Personally I don't have any problems with GIMP, I prefer it to Photoshop in fact since it's less clunky and I code everything myself so no need for WYSIWYG design ... but then again I am just well adapted to my working environment.
I think it's easier to adapt to your tools by putting the initial work in rather then find something adapted to you, but good luck in finding a solution.
