Fireworks MX Magic Magic New RidersFunctional upgrades and best practices of Fireworks with special emphasis on building web graphics animation navigation and integrating Fireworks into the workflow Macromedia's Fireworks allows users to develop illust These Magic books are very hit and miss and this one does missing than hitting While there are a few good sections this book is of a portfolio for a few selected graphic designers than a useful instructional guideFireworks Magic is divided into sections which deal with certain tasks or techniues In many of the Magic books this works because the techniues are useful timesaving or at least provide motivation and inspiration to create That is not the case here The problem with this particualr book is two foldThe techniues illustrated are in many cases elementary in comparison to the book's focus If you do not know how to blend a background together a web techniue used sparingly in modern design anyway or proper exporting formats jpg vs gif why would you spend hundreds of dollars on Fireworks which is almost exclusively a web design tool? This book has almost no instructional value so even if you were a designer and your firm was switching over to fireworks something we did several years ago this in no way reflects the type of book your boss would put on your desk to bring you up to speed In other words if you were reading this book you probably already have fireworks experience but they want to show you how to blend a background or export agif? Not very well thought outSecondly the work presented in this book is with a couple of exceptions poor If one of my designers presented something similar to the work shown in most sections of this book we would be having a serious talk about their need for retraining In fact there are many techniues used in this book which I truly uestionIn the very least this book could have been a source of design inspiration It the best case it could have been both a inspirational design book and have some good instructional content In reality it has neither With the exception of two sections this book is a proverbial show and tell for mediocre designers
