Try Adobe Fireworks software to rapidly prototype websites, application interfaces, and other interactive designs. Create, edit, and optimize web graphics more accurately and faster than ever with the enhanced toolset. Demo your design live for your client, or e-mail an interactive PDF file.

Leverage the new user interface and core functionality such as consistent text handling and the Adobe type engine. Output your Fireworks designs to the application platform of your choice: Adobe AIR, Flash, Flex, or HTML. In addition, export web standards - compliant, CSS-based layouts - complete with external style sheets - to Adobe Dreamweaver.

Features:

Easy-to-use design tools for screen-based design:
- Create and edit vector and bitmap images, or import and modify native Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator files. Changes remain editable at any time, and final output is optimized for display resolutions.

- Improved performance enhanced
- Work faster with significant performance enhancements, including greater control over pixel placement of design elements, improved file opening and saving, updated symbol operation, and quicker bitmap and vector operations.

- Optimization and scaling tools enhanced
- Optimize graphics for a wide variety of screen types with preview, selective JPEG compression, and comprehensive export controls. Intelligently scale buttons and graphic symbols with 9-slice scaling to accelerate website and application prototyping.

- CSS and HTML export enhanced
- Design complete web pages in a robust graphic environment and then export standards-compliant, CSS-based layouts — with external style sheets — in one step. Integrate foreground and background graphics with distinct slice types, and utilize repeating images.

- Improved type handling enhanced
- Produce exceptional type designs with the enhanced Adobe text engine. Copy and paste double-byte characters from Illustrator and Photoshop without loss of fidelity. Float text inside a path, and take advantage of many other improvements.
- Sophisticated prototyping enhanced
- Design interactive layouts for websites and rich Internet applications (RIAs). Reduce development time by exporting multipage, clickable website comps as standards-compliant, CSS-based layouts, and bring RIA prototypes into the Adobe AIR® runtime without writing code.

- Intelligent integration enhanced
- Import Photoshop and Illustrator files while maintaining color matching, element fidelity, and editing capability. Export Adobe Fireworks® designs into applications in the Adobe Flash® software family for advanced interactivity design. Copy and paste objects between Fireworks and Adobe Dreamweaver®.
