Where is the Fade Image Tool in Fireworks CS5?

It has been more than two years since I bought my Adobe Fireworks CS3 program and believe me guys if you want to do great things especially while Building Joomla Websites, Fireworks is a must tool to have.

I mean is not cheap software but on the long run it will pay off.

Anyways, recently I was testing the newest version of Fireworks which is the CS5 Version and I got confused when I was not able to locate the Fade Image Tool inside my Commands Menu.

Now for those who don’t know what the Fade Image Tool is, basically with this tool you can create an image reflection or a mirror effect inside Fireworks like in the image below.

Do you notice the reflection below the iPhones? That’s what this tool let you do.

So that’s why I decided to create this quick post for those who get stuck with this small change inside Fireworks CS5.

On Adobe Fireworks CS3, the fading effect tool will be called Fade Image.

On Adobe Fireworks CS5, the fading effect tool will be called Vector Mask.
