Overview

Fireworks MX: From Zero To Hero is intended for the majority of readers who don't need to be told when to jump, or ask how high. If you’re new to Fireworks MX, this book will provide you with a fast learning curve to get you swiftly up to speed, and progressing towards the creativity you want to achieve; and if you already have some familiarity with any version of Fireworks, it'll provide many, many exercises and case studies that will extend your knowledge of techniques, tips, and tricks. In addition, the book serves as a handy reference to a reader of any level.

Structured in 3 distinctive sections, the aim of this book is to provide as much knowledge and as many skills and techniques as can be fitted into 450 pages.

Section One: Fireworks MX Primer. This section will get you familiar with the major tools and functionality of Fireworks MX, by example, and simple-to-understand explanation, and in fewer than 200 pages.

Section Two: Projects. Here you’re introduced to case studies and examples that will give you practical, hands-on experience and provide exposure to the more complex tools in Fireworks MX - learning by experience. As well as practicing your new found skills, this is also the place where you’ll learn many tips and tricks of the trade.

Section Three: Real-World. In this section we look at Fireworks MX as it’s used in the real world of professional design – not just as a standalone application, but as part of the formation of the designers creative toolbox.

This book is about a program, Fireworks MX, that assists in web design. It is smooth and flowing, giving an easily comprehensive interpretation of the materials at hand. After reading this book I became aware of many tools I had once overlooked in creating a site. This book can glorify a project of your's, that might otherwise have been overlooked. It's consistent with it's subject and makes what looks to be, complex web design, quite simple. It was a great help for me to adding features in my site. I highly reccommend it.
