    For my assignment I've just created a webpage in Fireworks, however I now need to put it into Dreamweaver and then add the hyperlinks, etc. How do I convert it/turn it into a Dreamweaver document?

    I'm using MX 2004, however I have access to CS4 if a newer version is required.

    Many thanks.

    Fireworks creates a drawing, Dreamweaver creates a webpage. It's like turning a blueprint into a building: the only way is through hard work. There's no simple way to "convert" one directly from the other, because the idea of a webpage is fundamentally more complex compared to a static image. Perhaps you should start with some web tutorials?

    That is entirely untrue within the context of Fireworks. My version (CS6) has an option to export as CSS and HTML with File -> Export, though I don't believe older versions had that ability. Otherwise, I'm certain they had the HTML and Images option.

    Yes, there is an export option. My version of MX 2004 does have it, I worked it out in the end.

    Fireworks doesn't just create a drawing, it has been easily made to be exported into HTML as well just for making PNG graphics.

    I don't need web tutorials because I know how to use Dreamweaver, code and make a webpage. The course I'm doing just requires me to make a webpage in Fireworks and export it to Dreamweaver/HTML. I'm not allowed to create it directly in Dreamweaver.
