I have been creating images for our Flash designer, saving them in Fireworks as png images. We recently discovered that they are being saved at 71.89 pixles resolution, while in the Flash they need to be 72 pixels. To solve this problem the designer has to open the pngs in Photoshop and resave them as a png, which is a problem.
Is this difference in resolution due to both PhotoShop and Fireworks being different products and originally from different companys, or due to me working on a PC and our Flash designer working on a Mac.
Can I set Fireworks to save pngs by default at 72 pixles resolution so any further images I create work in our Flash movie?
It's a Mac thing. If you change the resolution to pixels/inch in the "image size" dialog, it should show 72.
You don't have to though, just ignore it. The images should look fine in Flash.
I've just found out that the Flash designer is using Virtual Desktop on their mac, and doing their development in the virtual pc enviroment. Not sure if the Mac way of interpreting image resolutions is 'passed' to the virtual PC? My Fireworks is set up as 72 pixels/inches as the resolution so I think the mac/pc differences is still the cause of the problems.
