Adobe stated on Thursday that it had received clearance from the Justice Department to complete its $3.4 billion merger with Macromedia. The completion of the merger is expected on Saturday after a seven-month process. This will be one of the most powerful multimedia companies currently existent. Some talk has been over the future of Macromedia Fireworks. Currently, Adobe Photoshop is the dominating professional photo editor, but Macromedia Fireworks has its fair share of users as well. Will Fireworks just disappear? I guess we won’t have long before we find out.
