    Hi guys I am need of some help, I want to know if its possible to make cool text like making it look 3D, have a shadow, reflection. I have tried to use Fireworks but can't seem to do much beyond using a rectangle tool then aligning the text so it overlaps the rectangle tool and the canvas and then use the difference setting, even then I can't seem to able to just trim it so I only have the text.

    What's Fireworks equivalent of layer effects?

    Alright! I opened Fireworks, just for you! I'm have version 7-something, but I'm pretty sure it will work the same way...

    After you type out your text, Take the Move Tool. Wait, apparently it's called the Pointer. Any how, it's the black arrow and it's the very first tool in the tool menu. Using this tool, select your text if it is not already selected. In the properties window, you will have the option to add an Effect. Shadows, bevels, glows, the works.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.
