    Soft images

    skydogg
      Can anyone tell me the best method for softening the edges of the images that will go on my website with fireworks 8 without fading the images much?

      With great thanks,

          Without knowing what type of images you are working with, perhaps try this.

          Quick and dirty:

          Make a selection (any shape you want)and set it to feather (the higher
          the number the more of the edge that will be affected). If the selection
          is the image itself then delete the background or inverse the selection
          then delete

          Save the pixels:
          Use a mask
          draw the selection
          Set the edge to a light feather
          fill with white
          Shift select mask object and the image
          Go to Modify>Mask>Group as Mask

            The images are jpeg format instead of vector drawings.

            Thanks for the info. I will try those techniques of the jpegs.
