I'm calling my background from my CSS. There are 2 images on
my background that I need to have hotspots for. Is there a way to
make a "transparent gif" within Fireworks that I can overlay ontop
of my background image to call the hotspots?
Sure, just set the stage to the size you need, then go to
"image preview". Change the format to GIF, then select the eye
dropper tool with the "plus" symbol. Using the eye dropper, click
anywhere on the image to make your canvas color transparent. You'll
notice that it turns to a checker pattern. Click export, name your
file, and you're good to go!
