wikipedia says this..........probably better than i did

Adobe ImageReady is a Bitmap graphics editor shipped with Adobe Photoshop by Adobe Systems. It is available on both Windows and Mac OS X platforms.

ImageReady has fewer features than Photoshop and is designed for quick editing of web graphics rather than effects-intensive graphics editing. To that end, ImageReady has specialized features such as animated GIF creation, image compression optimization, image slicing and rollover effects, and HTML generation.

The Photoshop Toolbox has a quick link to ImageReady — the Jump to ImageReady button enables editing of the current image directly in ImageReady. The ImageReady toolbox is similar to Photoshop's toolbox. One set of tools that looks different, however, is the Image Map set of tools, indicated by a shape or arrow with a hand. The toolbox includes several features not found in Photoshop, including:
  • Toggle Image Map Visibility and Toggle Slice Visibility tools — These tools toggle between showing and hiding image maps and slices, respectively. [/*]
  • Preview Document tool — This tool provides a preview of rollover effects in ImageReady rather than viewing them in a browser. [/*]
  • Preview in Default Browser tool — This tool previews the image in a browser, including any rollover or animation effects. [/*]
  • Jump to Photoshop — This button opens the current image in Photoshop[/*]
