Just a quick reminder the Open Studio Discussion starts in 5 minutes.
Here’s a quick summary of what can happen in the Discussion:
- Ask questions about Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and Flash 8.
- Show off some work that used the Studio in some form or fashion. (not limited to Studio 8)
- Provide Tips and workarounds for various issues that could disrupt normal workflows
- Brainstorm about possible extensions to extend the Studio
- Chill out and have a good time exploring Breeze
Im also open to Flex, however, don’t rely on getting an answer from me. Im still learning myself.
My friend and fellow co-worker Junichi Saito over in the Macromedia Japan office has sent me a link that I thought would be worth sharing with anyone that reads my blog.
"Please take a look at this, Her character name is 8-chan. When you have a close friend, little boys and girls, we call their name with –chan. For example, Alan-chan"
The "8 the project" has stunning visuals and excellent Flash wizardry which will make any Studio 8 user oooogle over the new features they used in the project. I have explored this site from front to back and enjoyed every second of it even though I cant read Japanese very well.
Thanks for sharing Junichi-san!
Did you know that clicking the Contribute logo in the top-right of Contribute’s interface will instantly take you back to the Start page?
Often times I find myself in a position where I need to reference the Start page and the only way I’ve been able to find how to do it quickly was to select “about: Startpage” in the Address bar or Selecting (Home Pages > Starter page)
I believe I knew about that tip awhile back and just found it again.
Viktor Goltvyanitsa over at Dreamworld has busted out 2 new extensions that are worth noting for others to play with and use on a daily basis. Viktor is active in the Fireworks Forum and enjoys helping people out by creating extensions for Fireworks.

This panel gives you the ability to batch images at a specified resolution and adjusting the quality/scale and smoothness all in one shot. Its a nifty extension that I find myself using every now and then when I run into this type of workflow where I need to batch images with a specified resolution.
