The new styles in Fireworks CS4 are awesome. Having these new styles allows you to quickly create nice web buttons, text, photo frames, menus, and more. The styles are now placed in categories and the category will have to be selected in order to see the styles. So, what are the new styles offered in Fireworks CS4? Let’s take a look at the different Fireworks CS4 Styles.
The Text Corporate are all of the basic text styles found in the old versions of Fireworks. These text styles have not changed over the years. So, if you like the old styles Fireworks use to offer, no worries, they are still here.
These are your dark chrome styles. All of the styles in this panel have a chrome look and they are black and silver. Some of the chrome styles don’t look all that great, but there are a few good ones.
These styles are used for form inputs. If you are building a web template in Fireworks CS4 and need to add something to the forms, try the input styles. They are all light colored with some inset bevel and outset bevel.
The text creative styles aren’t that great. There are a couple of styles you might consider using in this section. There are 20 styles in this section. There really is no way to explain the styles in the Text Creative section.
These styles have an old paper look to them. They are really neat if you are going for the old paper look. These styles are great for creating photo frames and text effects.
The chrome styles in this section are a bit different from the ones in the Dark Chrome section. The styles in this section are very colorful. Some of them really don’t look like chrome but that is just my opinion. Maybe you have to apply it to just the right size button or text to get it to look like chrome. However, there are over 30 styles in this panel.
All of the styles in this section are black and gray with diagonal lines running through them. If you are looking to create diagonal like patterns on something, check out these styles. You can change the color from black to whatever you want. Simply change the color fill in the properties panel.
All of the styles in this section are gradient pastel colors. There are about 15 styles to choose from in this section of styles.
All of these styles apply a plastic look to whatever you are creating. Making the button or text to large will make the style look awful. So, try not to apply it to something that is real large.
Text Web is just basic fonts and colors. There is nothing fancy about the styles in this section.
Tool Tips has a wide variety of styles. Some of the styles are pastel, plastic, gradient, patterns, and blurry styles. The styles in this section are a bit hard to explain due to the fact that there are so many of them.
These are all wooden styles located in this section of Fireworks CS4 styles. These styles are great for creating buttons, menus, and photo frames. You will find dark wood, light wood, and in between wood shades in this section.
