Chapter 21. COMPARED TO PHOTOSHOP > Miscellaneous Features

Miscellaneous Features

Photoshop Filters

  • Fireworks also lets you use many Photoshop filters 49. However, they are not like Photoshop filters that can only be applied once and not modified. Instead Fireworks uses the filters as live effects that can be modified or discarded at any time. (See page 152.)

    Figure 49. Many Photoshop filters appear in Fireworks's Effect panel.

    Tip

    You can also point Fireworks to the folder that holds Photoshop 5.5 filters. Your Photoshop filters will appear under the Fireworks Effect panel. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing Fireworks 4 can't use the filters that ship with Photoshop 6.


Canvas Color

  • Photoshop creates a background layer when you first create a document. That background layer becomes the background color for the file 50. The layer itself must be modified to change the background color. Fireworks uses a Background Color command to set the background color. This color can be changed or modified at any time.

    Figure 50. Photoshop creates a separate layer that displays the background color. The background color of a Fireworks document is controlled electronically.
