Lesson 5. Advanced Techniques > Combining Shapes

Combining Shapes

A powerful feature in Fireworks is the set of path commands for automating path-drawing tasks that would be difficult, if not impossible, to accomplish manually. The commands, found on the Modify > Combine Paths menu, help you create shapes that you might not be able to create by hand. They also save you time, regardless of your drawing abilities.

In this exercise, you will draw a guitar (acoustic, not electric) for a music page on your Web site. Look at the shape of the guitar in the sample illustration. The curves of the body of the guitar would be difficult to draw, but if you look closely, its body could be created by combining two ovals.
