Adobe Fireworks CS6 maximum image dimension

I am using Adobe Fireworks CS6, and the maximum width I can set of my image is 5900 pixels.

Attempting to resize it larger than this results in no action.

The PC I am on is high-spec.

Does Fireworks have a built-in maximum image size?

I think I will try Illustrator to get the image up to the required 10000px width.


There is a quite old thread on Adobe forums where speculation is made that it’s because Fireworks is a screen-specific tool and this behavior might change in the future.

However, you can change the limit.

Make sure that Fireworks is closed, open Fireworks CS6 Preferences.txt file located in:

  • Windows 7/Vista: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Fireworks CS6\English\
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Fireworks CS6\English\
  • MacOS X: Library/Preferences/Adobe Fireworks CS6/en/

and change




or adjust this number as needed.
