Adobe Fireworks CS6 for Mac is a full-featured program for professionally designing websites and mobile apps, without coding. With CS6, you can design pages more quickly and easily with new screen layout tools to add to existing Smart Guides. Use templates, symbols, and reusable styles to jump-start your designs. Delivering vector and bitmap images, the software is especially useful for optimizing images for the web.
Fireworks CS6 is a powerful prototyping tool for creating click-through mock-ups of web pages. It facilitates a smooth workflow between design and coding by performing CSS extraction and generating CSS sprites, both of which can be executed within the newly introduced CSS Properties panel. You can export complete layouts with external style sheets in one step. Also new for this CS6 version is support for jQuery themes – Fireworks lets you create, modify, or update jQuery themes for mobile websites and applications.
Overall, Fireworks CS6 simply performs better than previous versions. There's faster redraw for the Mac OS, and also faster switching to Fill, Gradient, and Pattern.
