What’s New in Fireworks MX?

Fireworks MX is the latest incarnation in the Fireworks series. In the course of creating this version, the Macromedia Fireworks development team did scads and scads of research. They spoke to designers, production artists, and new users. A great deal of care was taken to understand what users need to make Fireworks approachable, creative, and interactive. This means that Fireworks strives to provide professionals, new developers, and designers with an environment that’s easy to learn and use.

This section provides an overview of the new and brilliant features that make Fireworks MX so great. For in-depth exploration of these features and how they work in conjunction with the rest of the Fireworks package, see the appropriate chapters. The new features, the redesign, and the increased usability of existing features and processes render Fireworks a more creative and fluid application. For designers, the new tools improve your experience in designing graphics, user interface, and animation. For web developers and site producers, Fireworks has evolved into a powerful tool for slicing the work of designers from any standard design application, compressing those images and creating the HTML code that you need to display those images, and the JavaScript to make them interactive. Additionally, new export features allow for easier integration with other applications for further development.
