Chapter 6. Creating the Tour Assets > Imaging in Fireworks MX 2004

Imaging in Fireworks MX 2004

Before we get into creating the images for the Oakbridge Community Center site, a quick review of the latest release of Fireworks is in order. This release of Fireworks contains some rather nifty new features. They include:

  • Usability Enhancements: Buttons to open and close panels and tabs, just like in Dreamweaver. Brushes and fills now have graphical previews. The Property Inspector now has a Fit to Canvas button that, after you figure it out, will make canvas cropping a thing of the past.

  • Color Replace and Red-Eye Removal Tools: A new color replace tool has been added to the toolbox that provides you with new color manipulation capabilities. While editing a bitmap, choose the color you want to replace and then specify the intensity using the controls in the Property Inspector. Begin brushing on the image, and the color is replaced using the settings you specified.

  • Auto Shapes: Auto Shapes are shapes with custom handles that let you manipulate them in all sorts of ways. They are coded using Java Script and a smart object API, so you can create Auto Shapes of your own.

  • New Live Effects: Including motion blur and a noise filter.

  • Dashes: Dashed strokes and gradients that follow the contours of a path—finally!
