Masking opens up a world of creative options, and adds flexibility to your designs as well, because with masks you are not permanently deleting pixels; you’re merely hiding them from view. Combined with using gradient fills, you can get some very customized results. Fireworks lets you work with both bitmap and vector masks easily and seamlessly. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to do the following:
Create a bitmap mask from a selection
Edit a bitmap mask using the Brush tool
Create a vector mask from a custom vector shape
Edit the vector mask and change its properties using the Property inspector
Use the Auto Vector Mask command
