    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!

    @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.

    @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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

    Thanks @Alex Baldwin They are for the web, but I'm hoping I can keep mobile pretty close visually.

    @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.
