    I think Photoshop seems to have found itself snowballed into its unfortunate position of accommodating to everything - yes i'll agree to that. But it's been a progressional thing - Photoshop has been around for a very long time, and a lot has changed throughout that time. Much like a web designer now needing to know how to code - compared to web designers back in the day.

    Thats where tools like Sketch come in - they do a set range of things, and they do it to the best it can. (I say it like this, cause theres some bugs that bother crap out of me ha!)

    Also another thing is that Photoshop is just another cog (albeit an important one) in the massive machine called Adobe. They have many, MANY users, applications, systems and internal politics (I'm sure they do, like any massive company). But what I'm trying to say is - quick and BIG changes like extracting a set of functions and putting them into a separate app is never going to happen quickly. However theres hope as they seem to picking up the ball game and becoming a bit more agile and focused.

      Fireworks already did almost everything people praise Sketch for… yet Adobe decided it was better off killing that and rolling Sketch features into Photoshop rather than rebuilding their own slim MVP for screen design from the ashes of Fireworks.

        I seriously don't get why Adobe did this.

        Fireworks could have been one of the best tools in the business if they had just put some effort into it.

          Because they don't understand or even care about how their customers use their products.

          • Killing Fireworks and Freehand, cramming everything into Photoshop = Not understanding your customers
          • Outsourcing almost all development bar some of Photoshop and all of After Effects to India because it's cheap = Not caring about your customers

          Maybe because in their old business model, the more features they crammed in Photoshop, the more people would purchase new versions of it.

          We can agree that using Photoshop for UI design 5 years ago was much less crazy than doing it today — and a leaner app like Fireworks perhaps wouldn't bring as much interest back then as it would today.

          After they changed to Creative Cloud, it makes no fucking sense, though. I guess they are living with the consequences of their past decisions and now decided to just go with it.
