Macromedia upgrades Web graphics tool

Macromedia next week will announce a new version of its Fireworks Web graphics production tool. Fireworks 2 includes new features to bring more productivity to graphics professionals, company officials said.

The product now features a style palette, which enables designers to quickly duplicate fonts and graphic effects across a site and a global find-and-replace feature, which can change text or URLs stored within the graphics across an entire site.

Fireworks 2 also enables companies to use a colour outside of the Web-safe palette in their graphics by locking in that specific colour, or by combining two Web-safe colours to create something close to the original colour.

Code generated by Fireworks for elements such as rollovers can be optimised and then sent to either Dreamweaver or Microsoft FrontPage.

Banner ads or other graphics that need to be a particular file size for inclusion on a third-party site can be automatically saved at the highest quality available for that file size with the product's Export to Size option.

Fireworks 2 runs on 32-bit Windows platforms and Mac OS and is expected to ship in March. Pricing is to be announced.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
