    Picking up where ImageReady left off

      Is there any way to open up the .psd in fireworks and turn the guides into slices the same way one used to be able to in ImageReady and then save the whole thing as one page?

          One option:

          Open the file in FW, create your Optimize setting (with no slices, you
          can only set one format/compression) and go to File > Export. In the
          slices field, choose Slice Along Guides. There's very little control
          here, but it will work.

          Another option:

          Open the file in FW. Go to View > Guides > Snap to Guides. Use the slice
          tool to draw your slices and set custom optimization for each slice. You
          can also name each slice in the Properties inspector, so you control the
          file name of the exported graphics.
