Our Fireworks CS5 course begins by teaching you the foundations of Fireworks and will quickly show you how to create vector shapes and design a logo. You will also learn to work with text, bitmaps and layers before moving onto creating interactive buttons using slices, hot spots and rollovers.
Finally, you will explore wireframing, RIA, AIR and mobile prototyping and how Fireworks allows you to design in multiple pages and even export standards compliant CSS.
