Fireworks for Basic Photo Correction
As a web developer or designer, you'll have no doubt come across this situation. The company has a press release and to go with it there's a photo. They didn't have time for a professional photographer, so one of “the guys” took a picture with a handy digital camera. It looked OK on the tiny screen at the back of the camera, turns out it came through a bit wrong. Unfortunately they really want it on the web site...
This tutorial is a guide to cleaning up just such a photo for the web with Firework's various image filters and effects. I'll introduce the different kinds of filters, then show you some typical problems and how you might want to fix them. It's aimed firmly at somebody who's new to Macromedia Fireworks, old hands will know this already. This tutorial was written with Fireworks MX 2004, but is equally appropriate to older or later versions as the principles remain the same.
