There is often confusion between index and alpha transparency. What are they? When do we use them? How do we create them?
I hosted a live screencast (with some Fireworks Q&A at the end) on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 at 6.00p PT (9.00p PT.) The recorded session is now available online.
I showed how to use the Master Page, Shared Layers, Symbols, and Styles to save time and effort when working in Adobe Fireworks. These techniques are relevant if you use Fireworks for interaction design or visual design.
Thank you to everyone who attended, and if you have ideas or requests for future Adobe Fireworks screencasts, please leave me a note in the comments below.
I will be speaking at the Designer to Developer Workflow (D2W) Conference in Kansas City this July 14-16 near the Power & Light District. This is a great conference for those of us working on multi-disciplinary teams and who are often moving among design, prototypes, and code.
I will be teaching one all-day class and giving two presentations:
- On Thursday, July 14 I will be teaching an all-day seminar “Introduction to Adobe Fireworks CS5″ that takes students through a series of hands-on projects to introduce the most important features of Adobe Fireworks CS5 and how it can be used for wireframes, prototypes, visual design, and asset and image preparation and optimization.
- On Friday, July 15 from 1.00p to 2.00p I will be giving a presentation “Design 101 with Adobe Fireworks for Developers.”
- On Friday, July 15 from 4.40p to 5.40p I will be talking about prototyping in “It’s OK to Throw it Away: Prototypes as a Collaboration Tool.”
I will be at the conference for all three days, so come join me at one of the best conferences for designers and developers this summer!
