I have designed a banner for my website using fireworks. Does anyone know if it is possible to place a "button" on the banner than can be used to link to another page? ie..there is a part of the banner you can click to direct you to another page. i need to place about 5 "buttons" on the banner.
you creat your banner in friweorks. add hotspots to it, say a circle in the middle of it where you want the user to click. draw a hotspot over it, name is something relevant (hotspot1), then export your files to the relevant folder.
then go back to your banner, change the colour of the circle, put teh hotspot back over it, and rename it (hotspot2), then export the image again.
doing this will export the main image and the two hotspots.
then in DW or FP, put your images in, and for the circle (which will be a separate image), use a rollover effect. and you cxan make it the link.
Fireworks offers to install itself into FrontPage up to FrontPage version 2002 as a toolbar icon. I don't have it installed on an system with FrontPage 2003 so I can't verify whether or not it links into the latest version.
Once you've created your graphics and added hotspots and links you can simply export the whole lot into Dreamweaver or export it as Dreamweaver html and Fireworks creates the html files and image folder for you. Search in the Fireworks help files for the words hotspot and export for full walk through tutorials.
Fireworks exported files do work in a FrontPage web. Import the files/folders into the FrontPage root folder and all should work as intended.
I suggest you look at this page on the Macromedia site and treat the articles thereon as your starting point. They should keep you on the right tracks.
