Can Photoshop be used for vector purposes?

Usually vectors are only created in vector-based programs such as Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape, with some limited support for drawing vectors in programs like Adobe Fireworks and Flash.However, can Photoshop be used for vector purposes? Would it be optimal to do all your vector-based image creation there, for example, considering that it might be later on used in the project in a web design layout?

The short answer ? No. I would advise to use Adobe Illustrator for all vector applications.
