Chapter 21. COMPARED TO PHOTOSHOP > Working with Tools

Working with Tools

Many of the tools in Photoshop are found in Fireworks. There are some vector tools in Fireworks that Photoshop does not have. Similarly, there are some imaging tools that Fireworks does not have.

Bitmap Selection Tools

  • The marquee selection tools in Fireworks are similar to the marquee selection tools in Photoshop 1. There are no equivalents to the Single Row or Single Column tools. (See page 205.)

    Figure 1. The two marquee selection tools in Fireworks are the equivalent to the two marquee tools in Photoshop.

    Tip

    Many older Photoshop tutorials use these marquee tools to create shapes. The equivalent in Fireworks is to use the object shapes, not marquee selections.


  • Fireworks's two lasso tools are directly comparable to the Lasso and Polygon Lasso in Photoshop 2. Fireworks does not have a Magnetic Lasso tool. (See page 206.)

    Figure 2. The two lasso tools in Fireworks are the equivalent to the Lasso and Polygon Lasso tools in Photoshop. Fireworks does not have a Magnetic Lasso.

  • The Magic Wand in Fireworks works similarly to the Magic Wand in Photoshop 3. (See page 207.)

    Figure 3. The Magic Wand in Photoshop is similar to the Magic Wand in Fireworks.

    Tip

    As soon as you use any of the bitmap selection tools Fireworks switches into the Bitmap Mode.
