Part: II Adding Images and Multimedia > Using Fireworks to Create Images

Hour 7. Using Fireworks to Create Images

Fireworks MX is an image creation and optimization tool that is an excellent addition to your Web development Tools panel. You will need to create and optimize the images that you use in your Web sites, and Fireworks enables you to quickly create images with cool effects, such as bevels and glows. If you do not have Fireworks MX, you can download a trial version at www.macromedia.com/software/trial_download/.

Dreamweaver and Fireworks are tightly integrated. You can open Fireworks files in Dreamweaver, make changes, and see those changes in the original Fireworks file. You can also export tables, rollovers, and HTML code created in Fireworks directly into Dreamweaver.

Fireworks is a professional image tool that could fill an entire 24-hour learning period on its own! In this hour, you will simply touch on some of the important elements and learn a few image manipulation techniques. There is so much more to learn about Fireworks than is possible in this hour.
