Chapter 27. Web > Slicing

Slicing

Slicing is the division of areas in an illustration . When exporting an illustration using the Save for Web dialog box, you can choose different optimization formats and settings for each slice in order to achieve faster download speeds. A separate export file will be generated for each slice containing the object or objects within the slice area. Slices also determine how the exported illustration will be translated into a valid HTML table for display as a Web page within a browser. Slices created in Illustrator can be edited in Adobe Photoshop or Adobe ImageReady, and Illustrator slices can be read by Adobe GoLive. Three types of slices can be created in Illustrator: object slices, text slices, and user slices.
