Dreamweaver MX 2004 through Dreamweaver CS6 (and up)

Fireworks version MX or higher is required for automatic image processing, as well as for editing toolbar images. If you do not have Fireworks, thumbnail and full-size images can be made in any image editor and then imported into your Lighshow.

Browser Support

Lightshow magic supports Firefox, Opera, Safari, Chrome, IE6, IE7, IE8 (and higher)

Older browsers degrade gracefully. Content Slides appear inline in the page and image thumbnails link to their associated full-size versions.
