Making a ton of buttons. Fun stuff.
Oh, and did I mention I switched to Photoshop? Yeah, I love FireWorks, but it seems like a continual work-around. I fell in love with Sketch, but its just not ready for prime-time. So… I'm back to PS with all of the goodies that come with it. Just wish the workflow was more interface design friendly. Well anyway, I'll quit ranting now. Happy weekend!

wanna be a boss and give me your opinion on why its not interface friendly?
@Nick Slogget Yeah, here's a start: 50 Reasons.
Also, look at the simplicity and benefits of Sketch2 and you'll quickly see how awesome an app is that was built FOR interaction design. If it just wasn't so buggy yet…
And finally, the majority of people I hand files off too are only comfortable with Photoshop, so it does save me time by not having to convert documents, or export slices etc. Plus now I get all the goodies that have built for photoshop such as layer cake, skala preview (real-time), devrocket, etc.
Pretty damn awesome, @Anthony :) I'd love to see these in CSS :)
ok and now share'em
@Louis Bullock @Daors Reka Did these for a client, so can't share them, but good news! They are based off of twitter bootstrap which you can get and is in css3 :D
@Anthony Lagoon What stuff do you miss from Fireworks? It would be awesome to get a blog post from you about your experiences with both applications. Perhaps a different perspective?
Very sick, man. Very good work.
@Anthony Lagoon I think you mean Layer Cake... I love that app so much...
Thanks @Oscar Waczynski Thanks! Oh the joys of typing on an iPhone.
bootstrap.js ;) Loving the buttons :D
@Anthony Ah that's all good :) I can put together some from Bootstrap later :)

So they're no where near as polished or beautiful as Anthony's original buttons, but I had a go at making all these in CSS. Pretty happy with the result.
Feast your eyes.

These are currently built into a framework im building. I thought they looked similar to Anthony's but just a bit more subtle.
I tend not to go crazy with the gradients / shadows. So They are only applied subtly when the user hovers/presses the button.
There is the normal, hover and active state in this shot & coded in CSS3 & LESS (To auto generate different colour buttons) -
I suspect that you would know way more about fireworks then me, but is it true that fireworks has more accurate "exporting" like things such as curved buttons like above? I know @bdc uses it a ton and does incredible stuff with it! He even write an article but I can't find the link ATM.
welcome back man. ps has missed you.
Pretty good looking, are they for an iOS project or web?
Thanks @Alex Baldwin They are for the web, but I'm hoping I can keep mobile pretty close visually.
nice job mate!
@Mitchell Bernstein I'm not aware if ti exports more accurately, but it does allow for easier border-radius manipulation than PS. It also has some slick tools for selecting points on a given side of the object. But at the end of the day, PS has so many extra tools and is so widely used that it almost makes it easier. I'm not leaving Fireworks for everything, but mainly for High Fidelity design.
Dude @Anthony Lagoon thank you for the awesome comment!
