Using Fireworks

This week we began using Adobe Fireworks to edit images. A couple techniques we practiced were removing items/backgrounds from images and duplicating parts of an image.

RarePuppers

I removed the background of the dog image mostly by using the Magic Wand tool. Once I had the Magic Wand selected, I clicked on the area I wanted removed and pressed the delete key. I also used the Polygon Lasso tool and Eraser in this same way to remove any areas that were left behind by the Magic Wand.

BirdsOnWire

On the bird image, there was a power line above the birds. I removed this using the Rubber Stamp tool. I first clicked on the sky area to be duplicated, which created the stamp. I then increased the stamp size and “stamped” over the power line by sliding over it with my mouse while holding down the left mouse key. In this same way, I duplicated the bird. This took several tries as to get the power line aligned properly. Once done so, the bird duplicated like MAGIC!
