Introduction

Macromedia Fireworks 8 is a powerful design and graphics editor, and Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 is a robust visual Web page authoring tool. Used together, Fireworks and Dreamweaver are a powerful pair of Web design tools offering a complete Web development solution. The two programs offer integration features to aid your workflow as you design and optimize your graphics, build your HTML pages, and place the Web graphics on the page.

This Macromedia Training from the Source program introduces you to the major features of Fireworks by guiding you step by step through the creation of several Web pages. The book’s 11 lessons begin with the bitmap tools to edit an image and then take you through the steps of creating a logo for a fictitious company and designing Web pages. You then add rollover buttons and export your pages as HTML files. The last lesson covers the integration between Fireworks and Dreamweaver. This book is not intended to teach you Dreamweaver, but you use Dreamweaver in Lesson 11 to see how Fireworks and Dreamweaver work together.

For step-by-step instruction in Dreamweaver 8, see Macromedia Dreamweaver 8: Training from the Source, also published by Macromedia Press.
