Adobe Fireworks® is a professional imaging application that combines vector and bitmap imaging technologies and techniques in a single graphics application. This unique approach to imaging is due to the specific focus of Fireworks, which is creating and manipulating screen graphics for the Web or for other
screen-based tools, such as mobile applications or Adobe Flash® products. Fireworks is a tool that lets you quickly and easily create, edit, or alter graphics and designs. And it’s a blast to work with, too!
This course covers many new features in Adobe Fireworks CS6, such as CSS3 properties extraction, jQuery Mobile theming, enhancements to the Properties panel, the Common Library, templates, and the Styles panel. You will learn how to edit bitmap images and work with vector paths to create web interfaces. You will learn how to create and edit symbols, a powerful feature of Fireworks, and how to use such rapid prototyping tools as Master pages, shared layers, pages and states, styles, and Common Library symbols while you work on a wireframe for a tablet app and a high-fidelity prototype for a website. In addition, you will explore the art of optimizing graphics for the Web, striking that perfect balance between file size and image quality.
As you progress through the course, you will discover the many time-saving features Fireworks offers, such as the Batch Process Wizard, the Import command, and the Export Area command. Plus, you’ll learn how Fireworks integrates with other Adobe CS6 applications like Photoshop and Bridge. Finally, you will test out new Fireworks features, such as the CSS3 Properties extraction panel. You’ll learn how to customize a jQuery Mobile website by using the new jQuery Mobile Theme command, and see how both these mobile-focused features work with Adobe Dreamweaver.
