Slicing

Slicing an image for the Web identifies sections of a single file that can have some independent functions. For example, the slices of an image load into a Web browser’s window individually. You can also assign specific optimizations settings for each slice of an image. Illustrator allow you to slice an image using a variety of techniques.

The Two Types of Slices

When you designate a slice, using any of the techniques described in this section, you’ve created a user-defined slice, or a user slice. Illustrator automatically divides the rest of the image into appropriate rectangles so that the entire image is represented by slices. Those slices are called automatic slices, or auto slices. All slices are rectangular. If an image is not rectangular, surround parts of the artboard are included so that each slice is rectangular, as will be the image overall.
