- [Voiceover] Hey there, this is Ray Villalobos and welcome to Fireworks CS6 New Features. In this course, I'm going to show you some of the new features in Adobe Fireworks CS6. I'll start by showing you how the new Fireworks gives you quicker access to color so you can switch from solid fills to gradients or patterns in just a couple of clicks. I'll show you some of the improvements to the panels which include the fill, gradient, path, and layer panels as well as the properties and spector. Then, we'll examine the new CSS properties panel, the sprites cross-browser compatibility code and can generate code for cascading-style sheets.

We'll take a look at how Fireworks can generate sprites and how to use them on a web layout.

We'll be covering all these features and more, so let's get started with Adobe Fireworks CS6 New Features.
