Lowery discusses the particular strengths of Fireworks, the (common Macromedia) interface, and the work environment; every tool, menu, and palette gets scrutinized. Mastering the tools (a "short learning curve," the author notes encouragingly)--vector graphics, bitmaps, colors, strokes, paths, and text--are then examined. Readers are introduced to how the results work on the Web (hotspots, slices, rollovers) and then learn the best methods for making GIF animations (onion skinning, tweening, frame handling). The appendices include a Web primer and keyboard shortcuts. Throughout the book, features that are new in version 4 are highlighted for easy access, as are tips (insights that go beyond basics), notes (technical asides) and cautions (anticipations of common errors).
Why would you want another reference when Macromedia provides great online application support? Because Lowery packs a lot of experience in with the how-to instructions. For example, he is sure to mention any technique that might shave even just a second off work time. Add them up and you may just find yourself with enough leftover time to have another cup of coffee and make more art. --Angelynn Grant
