The interface alone is worth the upgrade price because of the efficiencies it brings, but there is much more here. Being more of a vector guy, I don't use most of the raster tools, but there are some great new ones such as smudge, dodge and burn, etc. The polygon slice tool makes short work of sophisticated rollover diagrams.
I would strongly recommend getting on the Macromedia bandwagon. With cross-browser problems still raging (although NS 7.0 goes a long way to help), I believe Flash is simply going to take over the Internet, period. Fireworks MX is the best way to build your Flash graphics.
The almost-inevitable downside to such a powerful program, however, is the computing power needed to operate it. If your computer is not quite on the cutting edge of technology anymore (much like mine), be prepared for slower program start-up times and delays while the program applies customizations (e.g. filters) to graphics or to text. System requirements for Windows include a 300MHz Intel Pentium II Processor, 64 MB of free available system RAM (128 MB recommended), 80 MB of available disk space and Adobe Type Manager Version 4 or later for use with Type 1 fonts. Requirements for Macs include a Power Macintosh G3 Processor, Mac OS 9.1 or higher, 64 MB of free available system RAM (128 MB recommended), 80 MB of available disk space and Adobe Type Manager Version 4 or later for use with Type 1 fonts (OS 9.x).
Now you can add filters in real time!
Example: Type out a word, LOGO for example, add bevel boss, and a glow, now you can edit the text and the effects will remain!
I highly reccomend this program for Web Designers, or anybody looking to create dazzling effects with ease.
Create amazing effects for your website also, eazily add roll over effects, and impressive buttons.
