    apply background image to the whole transparent canvas

      In Fireworks MX2004 or CS4 how:

       

      apply background image to the whole transparent canvas ?

       

      Also, apply background image to the whole transparent image GIF alone, or already imported to a png bigger file?

          You don't apply a background image to the canvas. The canvas can be transparent or a color.

           

          What you can do, however, is place a bitmap as the lowest element in the layers. For example, This Fireworks .png document has three vector elements on a transparent canvas, but I put a bitmap below them:

           

          bgexample.png

           

          Here's a view of the Layers panel, showing the bitmap at the bottom of the stack:

          bglayer.png

           

          If you have a small image that you want to tile across your entire document, place a rectangle at the bottom of your layer stack, making it the same dimensions as your entire document. Then, you'll need to define a new custome texture and apply that as a fill to your rectangle. For instructions, check the Fireworks Help on textures.
