In Photoshop I can apply an effect to a layer and then separate the effect from the layer by using "create layer." I need to do the same thing in Fireworks. I need to remove the outer glow and create a soft transparent png file. I can do it in Photoshop. The only reason I want to do it in Fireworks is that I have to open the photoshop file in Fireworks eventually because I cannot make a perfectly transparent PNG-8 in photoshop but for some odd reason I can in Fireworks. Am I doomed to using both apps to accomplish this simple task? Thanks.
