Adobe Fireworks (formerly Macromedia Fireworks) is a bitmap and vector graphics editor. It provides the tools you need to create expressive, highly optimized graphics for the web, screen and different devices and brings a lot of great visual and graphic design capabilities. As many of you may know, that with Fireworks you have the ability to edit interfaces of your sites or applications in both vector and bitmap modes. Moreover, to ease your work it has Pages/Master Pages, Layers, States and Symbols that are of a great help when creating a Web design. So, if you’d like to learn more about Adobe Fireworks, than you should certainly look through the articles and tutorials we’ve gathered on this topic. Hope, you’ll find them useful!
In this tutorial, a basic understanding of the Adobe Creative Suite will be required, for example familiarity with Photoshop or Illustrator will be ideal, but if you already have Fireworks experience then that will be a huge bonus for you.
In this tutorial we will use Adobe Fireworks to create a sharp, pixel perfect login box, using basic Fireworks techniques that can be applied to most User Interface (UI) elements for the web or in desktop and mobile apps.
Even though Fireworks is a great web workhorse its still possible to create some nice photo manipulation effects similar to photoshop. In this article i’ll go through a simple way to approximate the “tilt shift” effect we see all over flickr and alike.
So you want to have box with solid fill and semi-transparent borders? Adobe Fireworks does not currently have a insant hands-on access to adjust the opacity of borders (aka Strokes). However the functionality for opacity control is there – it is just hidden.
CSS allows a different width and color to be applied to the border on each side of an HTML element, but Fireworks’ rectangles are limited to a single border color and thickness. The Multi-Border Rectangle auto shape addresses this limitation, making it easy to mock up CSS-style borders.
