    Whatever Happened to written tutorials… Video’s are cumbersom, and hard to follow, let alone grasp at anything!

    @ Phil:

    Different people learn in different ways. Check out or or for many written tutorials. I have many written tutorials at adobe’s site and at Community MX, if you prefer to read.

    That was very well illustrated. IMO, tutorial videos are not cumbersom – they challenge you to create what’s needed.

    Thanks for being so Incredibly Helpful !
    I find this particular Video to be fundamentally helpful. From here I can get up some little bit of speed while creating. (the new guy)
    Wow, what a great piece of work FireWorks is. Literally, I did not know what I bought. I am impressed 1000 times over with the work that Adobe does. Can’t wait till I become fluent with the whole set of Premium CS4 programs.

    @Terry: You’re very welcome. I’m glad you find the tutorials helpful! And yeah, Fireworks is pretty cool. :-)

    Jim, I really enjoy your tutorials. What option did you use for your background image to show through the grey rectangles?
    Thank you,

    If you have a complex layout with boxes partially overlapping then the export does not position relatively, its only for basic designs. Shit!
