I am a photoshop user who is a web developer. the graphic artist in my office insists on using fireworks... i think that this program is nowhere nearly as good as photoshop but that is a debate for another life.
photoshop has a "save for web" feature which I find DRASTICALLY reduces image size on web images. I have searched google for this... maybe I have not typed in a correct search string like an idiot... but for the life of me I cannot find a "save for web" feature in fireworks... I can only find a feature that encodes the images to HTML.
I have been saving her firework images as photoshop images and opening the pics up in photoshop, but this is time consuming and drains my harddrive. she will not switch to photoshop. hence the reason why I need to figure out how to do this.
