Chapter 11. MASKS AND INTERACTIONS > Applying Transparency

Applying Transparency

One way to have an object interact with other objects is to the object's transparency or opacity. Transparency—or lack of opacity—allows you to see through an object to the objects underneath.

To change an object's transparency:

1.
Choose Window>Layers to open the Layers panel 1.

2.
Select the object you want to change.

3.
Drag the Opacity slider or type a new percentage in the Opacity field 2.

Tip

The Opacity controls in Fireworks are similar to the layer opacity controls in Adobe Photoshop. However, in Fireworks, each object on a layer can have its own opacity setting. In Photoshop all objects on a layer share the same opacity setting.
