How to Modify a Filter in Fireworks

Adobe Fireworks CS3 is one of many computer programmes developed and launched by Adobe Systems Incorporated. It was formerly known as Macromedia Fireworks and is used for editing bitmap and vector graphics. The main purpose of developing Adobe Fireworks CS3 was to make it easier for web designers to create website prototypes and application interfaces quickly and easily. To make it more convenient, a number of filters were added by default in the programme. If you ever find yourself in need of modifying a pre-applied filter in a Fireworks document, here is what you will have to do.

    From the list of ‘Filters’ in the window that popped up on your screen, click on the button labeled ‘info’ which should be located right in front of the pre-applied filter that you want to modify. The button which you need to click is simply a small blue circle with the letter ‘i’ inside it. Adobe Fireworks CS3 will pop up another dialogue box. This is where you can make changes to the filter. If however, the dialogue box does not pop up, it means that you can modify that particular filter.
