    Great work Tom! Please keep ’em coming!

    I don’t think that most PS people knwo the real power of prototyping made possible by FW and how much time they could save b using it.

    But, your videos should go a long way towards rectifying that situation.

    These Fireworks tutorials have been very interesting. But I have to say, it would be helpful if you were more careful with the screen shots of the actions you’re explaining. For example, at 1:05 in this video, you explain how to show a “series of pages” by clicking “right here” — but your cursor is off screen, so I can’t see what icon you’re clicking! Same thing at 5:01, when you say “…come to the context menu, right here.” Again, your cursor is off the screen, and I cannot see where you’re pulling the menu down from (and i cannot find the context menu on my own Fireworks program).

    The same thing happened two or three times in Part 1 — I hear you say “right here,” but your cursor isn’t showing where “here” is. It’s rather frustrating.

    Also, it would be nice if you could group the series in one place, and in order. Maybe I’m missing something, but when I look up “Fireworks” under tutorials, I get several pages of videos, which are not in any particular order.

    Don’t mean to complain, but only offer feedback. The videos are great. Just hard to follow when the action
    is off screen.
