Adobe Fireworks CS3 is the ideal tool for creating and optimizing Web images

Adobe Fireworks CS3 is the ideal tool for creating and optimizing images for the web. This incredible software allows you edit both vector and raster images, so you can quickly mock up designs, or leverage assets created in other Adobe's applications. This version features a number of new Auto Shapes that you can drag onto your layouts, such as calendars, flowcharts and an Inspire option, which randomly generate a new shape each time you click on it. There are also pre-built user interface components, such as button, button bar, panel and combo box, which can be dragged onto your layout to create an interface for a rich internet application in just a few seconds. There is another great feature that allows you to quickly add new pages to your design using the new pages pallete, which can be really useful when trying out design ideas. The file format by default in Fireworks is PNG, but you can export images to BMP, GIF, animated GIF, AI, JPG, SWF, PSD, TIF, and WBMP. Due its incredible and powerful web-oriented features, Adobe Fireworks CS3 is the a must-have for web designers.
