How to Make Pictures Black & White in Macromedia Fireworks

Save

Fireworks is a bitmap and vector graphic editor. Formerly owned by Macromedia, Fireworks is now owned by Adobe. The export feature in Fireworks allows the user to export files into many other graphic formats, such as GIF, JPEG or TIFF. Many users of Fireworks are coders of front-end applications who enjoy Fireworks’ object-oriented approach to web design. Converting a colored picture to a black-and-white is an easy process regardless of the version of Fireworks you are using.
