I have a number of images in a Fireworks document. When I select them they have a blue outline which tells me exactly how big the image is (they contain transparency).

How can I see this outline without actually selecting the images? I want to see how large all the images are and be able to move them one by one.

Unfortunately the Outline View feature was removed in Fireworks CS5. If you can get a copy of CS5, hit Command/Control + K to view all object edges.

Do you have a copy of Illustrator? You could copy your image assets into that, lay them out there (using Illustrator's Outline Mode) and then paste them back into Fireworks?
