    Image ready is like photoshop (but has LESS tools and is limited in some ways)

    BUT Image ready is THE tool for animated gifs and web graphics because it has "optimization" tools that drop the image "size" (as in kb size) without losing all that much quality

    also you can change animation order, frame size, add effects, etc.

    so just live by this:

    PHOTOSHOP: for all your image editing (graphic projects, ads, pasting people`s heads over a gorilla, etc)

    IMAGE READY: for animated gifs and optimization of graphics directed to a web page (since less kb means less loading time and this means a better fsurfing experience)
