Can someone please show me a step-by-step process on how to turn a flag into a glossy flag vector as seen below? I am using Adobe Fireworks 8.


Thank you

    Hi John,


    The problem I have with giving you exact instruction is that it has been a long time since I've used Fireworks 8. :-) I don't remember which features it had and do not have access to the UI to tell you which buttons to click. Let's try this:


    To hide an object, click on the 'eye' icon next to it's thumbnail in the Layers panel. To unhide it, click again on the eye icon.

    When an object is selected by clicking on it, you should be able to locate an opacity slider in the Properties inspector.

    To reduce the size of an object, first select it. Then you can you can either use the Transform tool to pull on a corner of the object bounding box, or you can select Modify > Transform > Numeric Transform.

    If you use the latter method, finish by choosing the Scale option, and change the default 100% to 80%.
