Hi zoe

I have tried one, but i didn't trace those lines very well, i tried very roughly and all i have done this is with gradient only.. check it out...

 

cheers

that is the FW png if you click on it then the lightbox pic comes up then you can save it, open it as a png in fireworks. or right click this http://pp.kpnet.fi/p...stuff/zz1-2.png and save as ;)

 

 

the biggest problem i had - that dev seems to have achieved better - is placing the highlights so close to the other gradient stops - very tricky with so little space in the gradient editor. there was an extension ages ago to make this easier but i didnt find it again ;) i did consider making the highlights as separate layer - but didnt have any more time.

 

i also made one rectangle with the blue gradient then grouped the strips or ribbons together then cut them out of this flat gradient block - that way all the gradients line up.

 

it certainly was a bit of a challange ;)

thanks zoe. lol actually i joined in 2007! but i forgot about this until i restored some old bookmarks so though i'd pop in again :)

 

i found the plugin http://pixelyzed.com...dobe-fireworks/ (scroll down to number 2)

 

would have been so much easier to have made it with this. i might tweak my version now i've found this... you can zoom into nodes so makes it a lot easier to accurately place highlight colours for example.
