Hello. I am a complete Fireworks newbie so forgive me is the
answer seems obvious.
I have 4 images that I want to cut into HTML using Fireworks.
These images are largely similar; same header, same footer, with
some variation in the middle composition.
I have made the slice lines for the first image. Will
Fireworks let me drop a PNG of the middle content into the first
project? If so, how, and what do I need to change to let me save
them off as their own graphics?
I tried porting the PNG in several times and when I cut the
graphic it keeps calling to the old (first) project, even if I
change the names.
Thanks! This seems like such a simple issue and I don't know
why I can't get it.
Make one Fireworks image with the header and footer and all
four middle images. Then, just turn off the visibility (click on
the eye symbol next to the object) for three of the middle images
at a time and do whatever exporting you want to do. That way, your
project is all in one source file.
Make sure you name your slices by double-clicking on them and
typing a name. I take the easy way out and rename my slices if I
change the content I'm exporting. (I'm lazy.)
