Photoshop vs Fireworks

Photoshop vs Fireworks :

Predictably fascinating stuff. FWIW, I’m firmly in the Fireworks camp, but I suspect this is mostly because I’ve never been able to properly understand or navigate Photoshop.  When I was initially migrating from the Acorn to the Mac, Fireworks shared just enough with the applications and conventions I’d been used to that I was able to pick it up without a great deal of confusion.

Photoshop, not so much.  It was only recently that I discovered it’s actually possible to resize an object in Photoshop without having to scale the entire canvas.  Even now, I can’t remember how it’s done, merely that it’s possible.  I think maybe you have to press T or something with the layer selected.
