Hey curtis, you just bumped a very old thread lol… When I saw danharper was the one who was the author I was like “Huh!” because he’s the one who told me about this site, and that was a while back.

I’d be happy with pretty much anything as well, have you received the email? I’d like to get into contact with you so we can discuss it a little more in-depth.

Would 50/50 be fair? Also regarding those collaboration accounts, I heard something about that but can’t seem to find any official information regarding it… Can you tell me about it more or provide links? Maybe an ‘official’ can post here about it? I wouldn’t mind sharing an account with Mark as he seems like a trustworthy guy, but having an official collaboration account would be nice.

I would love to work with you, and I was thinking this: I can create a design, and then you can go over it. If you think it’s good, collaboration time, if not then I’ll either try to optimize it or we can start from scratch. That way it’s a more robust system and therefore more likely to get accepted and prosper in the market. :)

I’ll send you a PM/email as well containing some contact info.

As for the collaboration accounts, I’m still hoping somebody with knowledge of that sees and responds to this thread!

Hmmm… Seems the edit function of a post expires after a little while. :\

I wanted to post saying I found that thread you were talking about Siam, and it doesn’t look like Collis came back to respond, at least within that thread. I’d truly like to hear what he has to say about Fireworks now, it seems like Fireworks has an immensely strong following here! That’s a lot of potential that Collis isn’t taking advantage of if you ask me.

Alright, well I learned Fireworks instead of Photoshop (Probably a mistake, but that’s what the course was about and I had no control over that) and was wondering what things that opens up for me here at GraphicRiver…? I normally frequent Themeforest, but I hate coding and they only have a PSD section, not a Fireworks layered PNG section.

Hi there, fellow Fireworker! :-)

The Fw-issue was raised early during the beta stage of GraphicRiver. At the time, Collis wrote that he’ll talk about it with Cyan and Amanda, but I guess they decided not to include it.

Still, there are some limited opportunities here to sell your editable Fireworks PNGs. As long as you provide the exact equivalent in the accepted primary source formats (psd, ai or whatever that particular category requires) you can include the Fireworks PNG in the pack. Just make sure that you show it prominently in the description.

The big limitation here is software compatibility. There are truckloads of Fireworks creations I’d love to sell here, but I can’t, since they translate poorly to Photoshop and Illustrator. Learning these apps seems to be the only way to make it big here, and while I keep making progress, they feel rather… boring to a Fireworks die-hard. ;)

Good luck!

(PS. I’m curious, what aspects of Fireworks was the course about? )


I don’t think Fireworks has some sort of ‘export-to-PSD’ option.
It has, but the compatibility is far from perfect. One really has to know both worlds get the most out of Fireworks’ PSD export, and even so, many unique Fireworks options won’t make it across.

It was just a basic course included in Web Design 1 at my high school. I’ve learned much more on my own with it though. Thanks for the information!

Chrome as well, very fast + minimalistic approach + extensions = winner.

Alright thanks for the honest input, I think I’ll focus on improving my design skills first!

Sorry for this triple post, but my thread has really taken a dive into the deep end of the page and I’m afraid people that I want to see it aren’t…
