I currently have a circle with a background color and a photoshop live effect of an inner shadow. I'm trying to set the background to transparent, but when I do so, the inner glow becomes invisible. Can someone please offer some tips on how to keep the inner glow with the background being transparent? The only thing I could figure out was lowering the opacity, but then the true color of the background doesn't come through.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
You could create the effect you want in the following way_
Drag out an ellipse with the vector ellipse tool on Fireworks. Fill it with the color you want the inner glow to be. Change the fill from solid to a radial gradient. Open the gradient editor and make sure that both colors of the gradient are the same. The color chip on the left side of the gradient ramp is the one that controls color in the center of the ellipse. The black chip above it controls opacity. Click on the black chip and change the opacity to 0. Adjust the position of the fill handle and the chips on the ramp to get the effect that you want.
Thanks so much!
