Hi

How do I create a curve in Fireworks and pop a image in the background like this http://www.celebrityproductions.info/

I know how to get that effect in Illustrator but how do you do it Fireworks?

    Linda's little Captivate tutorial will hopefully help more than words from
    me :-)

    To get your image into the shape you've created. Place your shape over the
    top of the image, select image and shape and from the Modify menu select
    Mask > Group as Mask.

    | Hi Peter
    |
    | Thanks for your help, but I am having problems with the mask!
    |
    | When I place shape over the Image and go mask, group as mask , the whole
    thing goes white any clues?
    |
    Oh yes, sorry I forgot. The colour of your shape must be 100% white, any
    different colours or shades of transparency will affect the colour of the
    masked image.

    if you got fireworks 8, all you need to do is create a curve using the pen tool , and adjust the points as often as you like. Convert the path to a marquee selection, then delete the unwated parts of the bitmap image.

    Duplicate the path that you have drawn or had converted to a selection, you will use it on the transparent and linear gradient border that you see in the curve.


    for the dotted lines, its just using the pen tool , and try using a dotted line dash for ur stroke.

    the image below the text An Audience With ,,,, is just using the smudge tool and just smudging some portions on the right. as for the pixelate effect, hmmm i forgot , lol !
