Text Callout-Comic Stip Text - Macromedia Fireworks

Is it possible to create a "text callout", as it is called in Word, to add text to a photograph so it looks like the people in a photo are talking like in a newpaper comic strip....

    Dave,

    Go here... http://www.phireworx.com/

    You'll have to register to see the extensions section. Once you're in
    look for the 'ShapeShifter Set 2' extension. Actually, you should check
    out all the good stuff in there.

    If you are using FW MX 2004, there's one in the Shapes panel.

    FWIW.... regardless of Fireworks version...

    You can find "callout" characters in the Webdings font. Using a point size
    large enough to suit your needs. Specify a stroke color of black and either
    white or transparent for the fill color. Here are the characters you'll need

    ( for a text bubble, left anchor
    ) for a text bubble, right anchor
    * for a exclamation bubble, no anchor
    { for a exclamation bubble, right anchor
    } for a exclamation bubble, left anchor
    [ for a thought bubble, right anchor
    ] for a thought bubble, left anchor
    ^ for group text bubble #1
    _ for group text bubble #2

    Cheers,
    Sam
