The Fireworks CS3 Web Prototyping Software for Windows from Adobe is a software program that is designed to be used for creating rough prototype versions of web sites and interfaces. The software lets you create, edit and optimize vector and bitmap images for use on the web. This is an excellent tool for graphic designers to use to present web interfaces to clients and web developers.
- Web Interface Development
- Fireworks can import web interface mockups from Photoshop and Illustrator. It gives you the tools you need to slice the graphics, creating buttons for navigation. It offers full support for layered documents.
- HTML Output
- The software is able to output a fully navigable version of a web site prototype that can be viewed in any web browser. This allows you to test and refine user interfaces before any coding is done.
- Image Optimization
- Fireworks works to optimize your graphics for the web. The image editing panel allows you to access common editing tools and filters. Batch processing is even available to optimize a large number of images at once.
