I recived a layerd PNG file from my designer. The problem is that the file even though it is a PNG says JPEG(Document) in the left corner of the preview window in Fireworks. B/c of that I cannot save my slices as PNG's. Do yo know how to change it?

Possibly the file really is a JPEG which Fireworks finds out by inspecting the contents, and your designer just saved it with the .png suffix?

Hmm, to my knowledge PNG does not even support layers. Neither JPEGs do. I think I'm out here. :-) –  Waldheinz May 27 '11 at 14:58

Neither PNG nor JPEG support layers. –  Brad May 27 '11 at 20:12

Ok, found a solution,

In the upper right corner of Fireworks there is a tab "Optimize". If your window says "JPEG(Document)" then you will see JPEG, so just change it to PNG.

Simple but was hard to find.

Thanks to Arek for finding this out.
