    Fireworks MX Saveing file as JPEG??

    Black.Imari
      Hi I just got FWMX04 and when I FILE~SAVE AS it only lets me save the file as a PNG.

      is there a way to save it as a JPEG or anything eles?


      if not is there a way to lower the iimage qaulity of the PNG?

          Don't save or save as. Export instead.

            File -> Export Preview (in some cases File -> Export).

            File -> Export Preview and see the options there. Or use your "Optimize"
            panel, then export.

            Please remember once and forever: PNG files obtained via "Save" should NOT
            be used for your Web pages or something like that. They are working
            documents for future editing and re-use. They contain layers, effects,
            embedded patterns, vectors and a lot of other stuff that no program other
            than Fireworks will read. So, they are great for further editing with FW
            but next to useless to your Web browser (they will be shown by the
            browser, but their file size will be several times bigger than necessary).
            Images to be used on your Web pages are obtained via "Export", not "Save".
            Images obtained via "Export" do not contain unnecessary stuff and are
            compressed as specified by you.
