Even though Adobe has officially discontinued Fireworks it still remains a very popular tool for UI design. Creative Cloud includes Fireworks CS6 as part of the bundle and it should be supported for a least a couple more years. Thus learning Fireworks can be one of the best decisions you make when it comes to mockup design and wireframing. These tutorials are aimed at complete beginners who want to bring Fireworks into their typical web design workflow.

Adobe Flash was adopted originally from Macromedia and has stuck to the course of digital animation. It’s a fantastic program which allows animators to create quick and simple projects. If you want to learn Flash it’s going to take some practice – both graphically and programmatically when getting into ActionScript.

But having used the program myself I can say it is worth the effort. I’ve built simple animations and beautiful website interfaces using Flash. Although Flash-based websites are fading out of popularity there is still value in the software for animation work. If you’re interested take a look over these beginner’s tutorials for learning to use Adobe Flash.

Google Web Fonts is no doubt the most popular free web-fonts service out there.

Adobe has launched an alternative named Adobe Edge Web Fonts where the fonts are served through Typekit.

The service includes the open source fonts in Google Web Fonts and some more.

Adobe Edge Web Fonts

Its usage is pretty straightforward, select the font and you get a .JS file to be included in your web pages. After that, use it as any other font-family in your CSS rules.

Currently, there are ~500 font-families and a documentation exists for details on the usage.

Brackets is an open source code editor (IDE), built by Adobe, which is created with only client-side web technologies like HTML-CSS and JavaScript.

The editor focuses on simplicity and, rather than too many panels, the quick-edit UI is the main thing.

A "live development" feature syncs a browser with the editor and displays any changes instantly.


It is integrated with the Chrome's Developer Tools and JSLint for debugging.

Brackets, although being web-based, works in a native shell (Win & Mac versions available) to reach the filesystem.

  • Last week, CS Review, a service to get feedback easily for creative jobs by Adobe, was shared at WRD.

    And, with that service, a giveaway of 10 Adobe gift bags and 2 months of subscriptions was announced. Today, winners are selected but, before that, let's remember:

    What is CS Review

    It is a part of Adobe CS Live (a series of services for designers and developers) which makes creative reviews so simple.

    For any number of JPG, PNG, .F4V and .FLV files, a new review process can be started directly from CS5 softwares or online, and e-mailed to friends, colleagues to get feedback for them

    Adobe CS Review Process

    They can write their comments for each file and you or other reviewers can reply to each other's comments.

    After all, you have all the feedback organized and stored under your hands.

    Just like any other CS Live services (including the Adobe BrowserLab), it is free for 1 year once you sign-up by April 30, 2011.

    And, the winners:

    Here are the winners of 10 Adobe gift bags and 2 months passes to tutorials:
