  • Great Tut. I have been using Photoshop for about ten years now and have not used Fireworks much but this has inspired me to start using it more.

  • Never took the time to fall in love with Fireworks like I did with Photoshop. This tutorial I’m going to give a try though. There has to be something about an app like Fireworks to make it so popular and I feel like I might be missing out on something!
