I figured out how to create graphics with hotspots in Fireworks. I make it work and it’s great. But when I export to Dreamweaver and try to insert into an existing docu- ment there, it’s not working.
I was able to copy and paste instead of export, and the graphic showed in Dreamweaver, but it was not quite right (hotspot colors were wrong), and it still did not show in a browser.
It allows you to select an average color from one or more pixels.
Sequence of connected steps.

Fireworks - Graphics Studio (some user interaction) is great for website layouts and image manipulation. You can create a layout using Fireworks, slice up all the sections and export that image to web format. It is awesome for layouts as well as logo design. While a Flash - Multimedia Studio (major user interaction) is great for a complete multimedia/user interactive design.

Adobe Fireworks is a graphics program developed especially for the creation of web based graphics.
Fireworks allow the greatest amount of control with ease of use and power. Some of the features are necessary that are well adapted into the program are layers, spe- cial effects, the ability to use Photoshop plug-ins, and much more.
Some of the most unique and powerful features of Fireworks lay in the exporting of graphics which traditionally had to be handled by a third party piece of software for viable compression. Fireworks allows the creation and editing of animated GIF files, JPG files, and the new Internet standard file PNG (Portable Network Graph- ics).
Another powerful area of the Fireworks program is that all parts of the image are editable at any time. This has never been done in a graphics program before. Basi- cally what this me is that if you get all the way through finishing an image and decide you don’t like a certain area, it’s not a problem. Anything can be changed at any time.
For example if you make a spelling mistake in some of the text on an image you can click on it and change it around. This could be compared to automatically cre- ating a layer for every single thing in an image so that it can be edited at all times without affecting the rest of the graphic.
As well as it all time edibility, Fireworks also has real-time effects. This me that if you want to experiment with a bevel, you play around with it and instantly see how the change would affect the image as a whole. (Some others effects are drop shadow, emboss, glow, and more).
A minor setback with this program is that the constant edibility and real-time ef- fects take up memory. When you have windows running, 32 MB of RAM on your system, Fireworks still sometimes uses about 5mb of that RAM.
Slicing is a way of breaking up a document into image and code aspects for exporting a file as a website.

Fireworks is Adobe's wer to PhotoShop. It can do lots of what Photoshop do and in some cases better like always being able to turn on and off certain filters.
Fireworks accept most PS filters and plug-in.
It's more powerful in creating a screen-based graphics rather than print-based and its tight integration with Flash and Dreamweaver and its fairly simple GIF animator.
It will not appear in the saved file.
