The following tutorial outlines how to edit the logo with Adobe® Fireworks CS4. Fireworks is required for logo editing. CS3 can be used for image source editing.
Open the logo-source.png file in Adobe® Fireworks.
Focus on the right column, titled Layers. Select the Web layers directory and click the eye icon to the left of the logo slice (the green object). This will make the slice invisible so you can edit the file.
Double click on the logo text. Now you can edit the text of logo to your choosing.
Now, select the icon and disable/edit it as you wish.
Reactivate the Slice in the Web Layers column, this will place a green rectangle over the logo image. Change the size of the slice (or move it) to match the new size if applicable.
Now you will want to export the logo. Right click on the image slice and select Exported Selected Slices… from the contextual menu. Proceed to export it to your computer for uploading.
If you are new to Fireworks, you may be wondering why it appears that there is only one style variation in the source. This is not the case as we take advantage of the Frame features of Fireworks. You need to simply switch frames to see all the other style variation sources.
There are a few ways to change frames and we will show 2 methods that you can use.
In the right column where you find the Layers toolbar including the Web Layers area, you should see another tab/toolbar named Frames. Just left click on the title Frames to enter the frames area. Then you can click on either of the frames which are named to show which style variant is on that particular frame.
The second method is the easiest and simplest. At the bottom of the Fireworks canvas is a row of buttons and arrows. Select the arrows to switch between frames.
