Did you know that you can open PSD files in Fireworks and spec them with Specctr?

Specctr can spec text, some vector shapes, and spacing in a PSD. Since Specctr wasn’t created for PSDs the functionality is limited but can still save you time if you are in a crunch. Try it out and let us know what you think.

What Specctr can do with Photoshop files opened in Fireworks:

  • Spec Text
  • Spec Width & Height
  • Spec Spacing
  • Spec Smart Object (Limited to fill and alpha)


  • For best results separate your objects in Photoshop into separate layers.
  • Different text styles must be placed in separate text boxes for Specctr to spec out the different styles
