Optimizing Bitmap Images and Files to Print

Fireworks is not often used to create printed images, and native Fireworks files are not well-suited for this medium, but that does not mean that it is impossible.

When creating printed graphics, quality is more important than file size, which in many ways is the opposite of creating graphics for the Web. The best solution, when using Fireworks to create print images, is to maintain the file as a vector image and export the file into FreeHand by using the steps outlined previously. This will automatically convert the file to the CMYK color model (used for printing) when the file is outputted to separations for printing.
