Along the way, you'll learn how to use the bitmap tools in Fireworks to edit an image, create buttons with rollovers and use effects for realistic-looking buttons, optimize and export images, use masking techniques for isolating portions of an image, add pop-up menus, and use Dreamweaver MX to add text to your exported HTML pages.
