I am very new to Adobe Fireworks and has no proper training with it. I am just training myself.
Here's the problem: My boss sent me a PNG file then sliced its layer. I have already the layer that needs editing. The editing part has been completed. However, when I exported a .GIF file to make it bitmap and use a website's button, the text font and its color changed. Even when I use the original PNG file, it looks good on Fireworks but when I exported a .GIF file (to make as one of the site's button), the font changed as well as its color. Is it a bug with Adobe Fireworks CS5 or it has something to do with ALIAS? Mine was automatically set to Smooth Anti-Alias. And again, it looks perfect on fireworks but when the exported GIF file is opened from the folder where it the file was exported, it's already different.
Sorry for being redundant sometimes. I just want to make myself clear since I am not really familiar with the terms. Hope someone can help and I would really appreciate it.
Thanks and GOD BLESS!
Thanks for the reply. I tried that but it didn't work. Let me show a screenshot of the file I am editing and where the exported GIF file is coming from.
But once I exported a sliced GIF File, for example the Jewellery, it will look like this:
Not the same font and color. Please help. Thanks and God bless!
It looks like the probem is an antialiasing one. When you export the GIFs, choose Alpha transparency and select a matte color that matches the background color of the HTML page you will be placing the image on.
IT WORKED!!! Oh my, I wanna cry because of joy! I have been already doing trial and error here and was focusing on the optimize panel. But that's the only thing I should do: CHANGE THE MATTE COLOR THAT MATCHES THE BACKGROUND OF THE HTMLPAGE!
I am so relieved! Thanks. Now I am gonna stick to this forum for future questions. It is very difficult for me to work with Fireworks. I started using it without proper training. I was just always told where to go and what to do; just simple cropping and resizing. But this one was totally different... Hope to get in touch with you soon again. You're superb Linda! I really appreciate the help. Hope you won't get tired answering my questions in the future
God bless you more!
