I have been using the same graphics software for years. It's called Fireworks. Macromedia used to make it. I've been using it so long that I actually upgraded in 2004 after several years of using the previous version. I got a substantial educator discount on the software. I've been wanting to upgrade recently. I'm no pro. I just make web sites for my own use... amateurish stuff. Anyway, here's the thing. When I use fireworks (which used to be manufactured by macromedia and isn't even made anymore), I can open up a png file that's broken up into small layers. Individual things that make up a whole picture... When I've tried some things recently, none of them seem to recognize the little pieces... and just open the file as one big lump. Anyone have any ideas for cheap/free graphics programs that I can use that'll do what I need them to? I have tried serif drawplus and the gimp... but they both open as a picture instead of the pieces I need. Thanks.
