Finally! Last night I uploaded my first tutorial to the pixel forge section of the site. It’s a Fireworks tutorial that discusses image background removal using a mix of vector and bitmap tools and functionality newly available in Fireworks 8 (specifically, the Marquee to Path feature). You can find the tutorial here:
If you have any questions about that tutorial then please ask them here in a comment to this post. If you have requests for new tutorial you can post them in a comment here as well or send them directly to me through my contact page.
I have other tutorials nearing completion including the "Why Choose Fireworks" article I "announced" on Macromedian Scott Fegette’s blog. The article is almost done but part of that article discusses Fireworks workflow advantages and masking is definitely one of them. Instead of detailing the steps in that article and lengthening it needlessly, I decided to write a full fledged tutorial and link to to it in the article instead. Now that it’s published I can go back to finishing the "Why Choose Fireworks" article as well as my adaptaion of the Photoshop watermarking tutorial for SlideShowPro users as well as several others that are in varying stages of completion.
Enjoy the new tutorial and post your comments!
