Fireworks is an offshoot of the Adobe Photoshop program, and features a number of the same capabilities. With these types of presentations programs, you can complete a variety of changes to your digital photographs. You can alter your photo in Fireworks to get it to look like a painting with a few different filtering and shading techniques that can be done from the program's main menu.

- Moderately Easy
Open a picture in your Adobe Fireworks application.
Right-click on your picture and select "Duplicate" in the pop-up menu.
Click "Filter" in the upper bar menu and select "Blur." Click "Gaussian Blur" in the next menu.
Change the value of the pixels until you get a look for the picture/painting that you like. Start with 20 and try going up from there. Increasing this value will increase the blue of the picture, making it look more like a painting.
Click "Layers" in the upper menu and select "Darken." Click "OK" and your file will now be presented in a more painting-like manner.
