Introducing Fireworks CS6 Welcome to this introduction to Adobe Fireworks CS6. Fireworks gives you the ability to create an optimized artwork for onscreen delivery. It also gives you the ability to rapidly prototype websites in mobile applications, giving a client a better idea as to what the final product may look and act like. Fireworks also gives you the ability to create skins for Flex applications, themes for jQuery mobile applications, and even allows you to export your CSS that you generate within the program into an HTML editor. Oftentimes people ask me what role Fireworks plays in the overall creative suite. Yes, there is some overlap with Photoshop, but Photoshop has a much broader audience. Chances are, if you had a photograph that you wanted to enhance, well, you certain could do a little bit of that in Fireworks, but Photoshop would be the better solution. Whereas if your main is to create either a website prototype or optimize an image for web or onscreen delivery, Fireworks would be your best bet. So, in this course, what I'm going to do is get you comfortable with the Fireworks interface, we'll learn how to create and optimize artwork, and how we can create prototypes.
