Abstract

Exporting a completed Fireworks document for web use makes for some interesting situations. For instance, how can you export graphical images that need hover, active, or click states while still maintaining an optimized user experience? You could use Fireworks’ built-in button exporting features to export each of the image states to separate files, but a more efficient way would be to export all of the image states to a single file or sprite sheet, as it’s often called (see Figure 13-1).
Figure 13-1.
