Things you need to know to create something like this in After Effects: How to make a Project and Compositions When you start AE, you can press Cmd+N to create a new Project with one Composition inside it. If you already have a Project open, pressing Cmd+N only creates a new Composition. In this project, I used 2 compositions. GUI comp to hold the GUI ...

InDesign gets my vote. It does all the tasks you're describing, and is meant for layout. However, as a general note, do NOT over-design your résumé. Even if you're a designer applying for a design job, please, make your CV clean and straightforward. If I'm reading through 100 résumés in a week (which I've done), I am really, ...

I'm using Photoshop CC 2014 at the moment and could simply achieve that by doing Image > Reveal All.

Good question, for I too have been a lifetime fan of Fireworks (their entire lifetime). Have you heard of Sketch? I can tell you that it's the only thing that comes close. (It's a perfect mashup of Illustrator and Fireworks, but SO MUCH closer to FW). Your transition should be seamless, and you will quickly be in love. Personally, I'll still use FW until it'...

There is no text box colour in Photoshop. The only way is to draw rectangular shape layer below the text layer (you could also use a bitmap layer). Yep, that's different to some other design software.

There are some "rules" regarding color harmonies that you will find very helpful for this case and any future ones you might have regarding colors. Color combination is really the most important part of color theory and designing with colors, and also the hardest-- It always comes down to your personal judgement and how you look at colors. There are, ...

There is a quite old thread on Adobe forums where speculation is made that it's because Fireworks is a screen-specific tool and this behavior might change in the future. However, you can change the limit. Make sure that Fireworks is closed, open Fireworks CS6 Preferences.txt file located in: Windows 7/Vista: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\...

File -> Export -> Choose "FXG and Images" in the drop-down for file type. This produces a much higher quality vector map than the AI8 "Save As" format does.

You can try Object > Path > Simplify and adjust the Curve Precision and Angle Threshold settings to perhaps get a curve. There's no straightforward method, which I'm aware of, other than this.

Create a selection before applying the blur...

Actually the only way to see which fonts are used, is to use "Replace fonts", note the missing ones and close the file without saving. Search them, download/buy/install them and you are done. I'm not aware of another way to do it. :/

I'm 99.999999% sure the example you posted is just a typeface that's like that. If you want to achieve a rough approximation in Photoshop, it's possible using the Bevel and Emboss Layer Style. The key is the custom contour. The best way to do something like that would be to use a font with the effect baked in, or draw custom shapes... probably in ...

There's also the Smooth tool if you prefer a more hands-on approach. Rub it over a selected path, and it smooths it where you rub. If it doesn't smooth enough, keep rubbing. From this tutorial: Double-click the tool icon to set how closely the smoothed line sticks to the original (fidelity) and how strong the smoothing is each time (smoothness). A nice ...

One huge recent change is the shift to vector graphics. SVG is now a stable requirement for new websites. A good web designer needs to use Illustrator or Inkscape for icons and other re-scalable vector SVG graphics, as well as using Photoshop or GIMP for the photographic, detailed, not-so-re-scalable raster graphics. I'm not sure if Fireworks would have ...

For Transparent Noise Create a new layer with the desired left over noise color you want. Add a mask to the layer in step 1. Go to: Filter -> Noise -> Add Noise. Select the desired amount of noise and click "OK". Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the final amount of transparent noise is desired. (Optional) Select your layer from step 1 and apply an opacity, to ...

To be honest, I'm not quite sure what your problem is. At least in my download of bootstrap, there is no .png file, just font files (as .ttf, .woff, .svg and .eot). So here are some ideas: 1: If you literally want to change the picture you have uploaded, open it in Photoshop, set Image -> Mode to RGB and color it using a Hue/Saturation Layer with ...

1) Use a Black & White adjustment layer. 2) Use a Photo Filter adjustment layer. I used a custom purple #6c118e. I made the intensity 95% and the opacity 98% (really just messing with the sliders) 3) Added a levels adjustment layer to brighten the image. I just moved the white point slider to the left, towards the middle. 4) Added overall saturation ...

I use Affinity Designer as a replacement for Fireworks. I also use Graphic by Picta which is pretty good too, but vector only.

use rectangular select (M) over the whole image copy the image (Ctrl/Option+C) File > New... on Preset click Clipboard then paste it there (Ctrl/Option+V)

The reason why your images look different is because of the compression you applied to the second one. The higher the compression, the more the quality degrades. JPEG is a lossy compression format, meaning there is loss of image information during the compression (a sacrifice needed to make the file smaller). For example, this is the same image saved with ...

Adobe's Photoshop supports something like 300,000 pixel canvas's. It has a "Save for Web" feature that allows you to save a PNG24 file (which supports your alpha transparency). It too has all the functions you are looking for.

Is this what your referencing? the #52524A color as the top most of grayscale. this was achieved via image > adjustments > gradient map. and setting the black to #52524A.

There are probably a few different ways of doing this, and in different programs. This is how I would do it: CODE: Start with a color background, and add a text layer/s with the code in white. TRANSPARENT CODE BEHIND: Either duplicate your text layer or create a new one, apply a gaussian blur to it and make it semi-transparent (30% or so) PICTURE BLUR: Use ...

These are the alternatives I've found to fireworks (in no particular order): Gravit- the closest one I've found. Open-source, cross-platform /web-based. Still quite young, I wouldn't dare do the switch though it's promising. Its interface is very similar to FW Sketch- very robust for ui design, but only minimal bitmap editing. Good ecosystem of plugins and ...

Saw this question as I was searching for Adobe alternatives. Finally had enough of their hands in my pocket and around my throat about 6 months ago. I'm keeping my (paid for) Fireworks CS6 until it dies, but Xara Designer Pro X10 is similar to Fireworks but can do a lot more. I'm not sure why it doesn't get much publicity but I'm really starting to like it a ...

To obtain a similar result I desaturated the image to grayscale Applied the bucket paint tool in multiply blend mode using a purple color.

Another quick way to do it in Photoshop is to: Create a new Document (with a white background) Create a new Layer (Cmd+Shift+N) Apply the Filter > Noise filter and set it as you like Double-Click the (New) Layer or select Blending Option in the Layer Panel/menu Set the Blend If This Layer's white point value to around 213—222 Hide the Background layer ...

It is much better to use Fireworks. All you need to do Save or export the noise texture as gif Select the background object. Browse to the texture by clicking the "Texture" dropdown Turn on the transparency by checking the "Transparency" checkbox White pixels in the noise texture will disappear Optional - Set the % value to set "Amount of Texture" overlay ...

Another way would be to: make a layer behind make a rectangular selection and fill it with color or... use a thick stroke XD
