Chapter 8. STROKES > Creating Pressure Effects

Creating Pressure Effects

Pressure means more than just meeting tight deadlines. It can be a good thing, too. If you work with a pressure-sensitive tablet, you can see how Fireworks strokes respond to changes in how you press with the stylus. Even if you draw with a mouse, you can still make a more natural stroke based on how you drag with the mouse.

To create a natural brush stroke:

1.
Select the Brush tool.

2.
Choose a brush such as Airbrush set to Basic or Calligraphy set to Quill.

Tip

These strokes respond very well to variations in mouse movements.

3.
Drag along a path pausing without releasing the mouse button. The width of the stroke increases where you pause in the drag 9.
