Chapter 11. Working with ImageReady > Working with the Imageready Desktop

Working with the Imageready Desktop

Before we start to use ImageReady, let's take a minute to look at the program. Much of it is already familiar from Photoshop. The Photoshop Save for Web dialog is very similar to the ImageReady interface. It has a toolbox at the left, a tool options bar across the top of the screen, and a collection of palettes on the right. Below the tool's Options bar you can see the Window tabs at the top of the window in ImageReady and starting in the upper-left corner of the Save for Web dialog. They determine the content of the preview area. You can show the original image alone, a single image that is updated to show you current optimization settings, or you can compare images. When you select 2-Up, a pair of images is visible in the preview area. By default, the original image and an optimized image are shown, although you can change the original to any optimization settings. When you choose 4-Up, you can see the original and three different optimization possibilities for comparison or see four different sets of optimization options.

In both the 2-Up and 4-Up views, you activate a pane by clicking it. That version's settings is shown and can then be changed. Figure 11.2 shows the 4-Up view.
