Accelerate web design and development with Adobe Fireworks software, the ideal tool for creating and optimizing images for the web and rapidly prototyping websites and web applications. Fireworks offers the flexibility to edit both vector and bitmap images, a common library of prebuilt assets, and timesaving integration with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Dreamweaver, and Adobe Flash software. Mock up designs quickly in Fireworks, or leverage other assets from Illustrator, Photoshop, and Flash. Then move directly into Dreamweaver for easy development and deployment.
Optimize graphics for virtually any delivery scenario with preview, cross-platform gamma preview, selective JPEG compression, and a wide range of export controls. Import Photoshop (PSD) files while retaining hierarchical layers, layer effects, and blend modes. Save Fireworks (PNG) files back into Photoshop (PSD) format. Import Illustrator (AI) files while retaining graphic integrity, including layer, group, and color information.
Prototype interactive layouts for websites and rich Internet applications. Export website prototypes to Adobe Dreamweaver and RIA prototypes to Adobe Flex. Organize and manage your prototypes with a new hierarchical layer structure--similar to the one in Adobe Photoshop--that enables you to easily organize web layers and pages. Jump-start your prototyping with a common library of graphic symbols, text symbols, and animations frequently used in web applications, forms, interfaces, and websites.
Intelligently scale buttons and graphic symbols (in vector or bitmap) with 9-slice scaling. Combine 9-slice scaling with the new Auto Shape library to accelerate website and application prototyping. Create pop-up menus that can be saved as CSS and HTML. Export Fireworks (PNG) files directly to Flash while maintaining vectors, bitmaps, animations, and multistates, and then edit in Flash Professional.
