By | July 24, 2014

What is the difference between Adobe ImageReady and Photoshop. Adobe ImageReady is the software use to make animation, image compression optimization, adding rollover effects, and HTML generation, image slicing. Both Photoshop and Imageready use for making bitmapped files, including JPEG, JPG, TIFF… But Photoshop can’t create GIF file. Photoshop can build vector images, illution. Adobe Imageready is packaged with Photoshop Software which was designed for web development. ImageReady was not designed to be used as an image editor. The ImageReady’s toolbox and application frame like that of Photoshop. But Adobe Photoshop have more tools than Adobe ImageReady. In Photoshop CS6, Imageready is packaged on window menu (Where is ImageReady in Photoshop CS6 )
