Fireworks MX Magic (Magic (New Riders)) Reviews
These "Magic" books are very hit and miss and this one does more missing than hitting. While there are a few good sections, this book is more of a portfolio for a few selected graphic designers than a useful instructional guide.
This expensive book on Fireworks MX has a little over 200 pages covering 15 projects. It is assumed that you are a beginner wanting to move to the next level. The projects address important problems you will encounter on a daily basis and explain solutions in a simple step by step fashion.
If you're looking to really jazz up a web site, incoporate Fireworks with Dreamweaver or Flash, or simply to use Fireworks as a standalone software product, this book is for you. Granted, beginners will have a harder time understanding all the concepts, but you can get Fireworks 4 Expert Edge (by the same authors) if you need some help with the basics. The included CD provides all the tutorials listed in the book, and you can modify and/or copy any needed elements. The 15 lessons will provide you hours of instruction from some of the most brilliant minds in web design. What are you waiting for?
Gives step-by-step, easy to follow instructions to use intermediate and advanced techniques to create or modify graphics. This book would be very hard for someone with little or no Fireworks experience to follow, as it assumes one knows where all the menu items and commands are located. But for those who are ready to dig a little deeper into the features and functions of Fireworks, this is a great tool.
If your looking for the basics on getting started there are many others that will do the job. This book step right into the heart of Fireworks and bends and stretches the tool we know as Fireworks.
I had a lot of fun going through this book learning how to use most of the tools Fireworks MX has to offer. The only improvement I'd make is color! I was surprised to find such a rich book in black and white. Overall, I recommend this book to anyone doing graphics for the web. This book is a great intro and Fireworks is a great tool.
