Chapter 7. FILLS > Creating a Web Dither Fill

Creating a Web Dither Fill

In addition to a solid color fill, Fireworks offers a Web Dither Fill. This allows you to choose two colors that are combined together in a pattern (also called a dither) to simulate a third color. This gives you more control over the number of colors in your document. (For a color print-out of a Web Dither Fill, see the color pages.)

The Benefits of a Web Dither Fill

One of the benefits of the Web Dither fill is that you can limit the number of colors in your document, which keeps the file size down, but still have areas that simulate the look of other colors.

For instance, if you use only four colors — black, white, red, and blue — the Web Dither fill lets you combine them into others. For instance, black and white create gray; white and red create pink; black and red create dark red; black and blue create dark blue; and red and blue create purple.

So, although the final GIF image uses only four colors, your viewers see nine.
