Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Want fast, simple answers and step-by-step techniques for creating great web images with Macromedia Fireworks 3? You'll find them in Fireworks For Windows & Macintosh: Visual Quickstart Guide. No fluff here, nothing fancy, not a lot of theory: just follow the steps, look at the screen shots, do it — and get the results you're looking for.

Sandee Cohen covers the length and breadth of the program: document setup, colors, path tools, selecting paths, working with objects, fills, strokes, effects, text, and more. There's a chapter on Fireworks' handy automation features, such as scripting and batching; coverage of importing and working with bitmapped artwork; optimizing your images; creating GIF animations; adding hotspots, links, and behaviors; and exporting the whole shebang for use in your web pages.

Occasionally Cohen allows herself to get a tad too cute (maybe you don't care her cat is named "Pixel"). But those lapses are rare. To paraphrase the old Ivory soap slogan, this book is 99 and 44/100 percent pure practical answers.
