Chapter 23. WEB/IMAGEREADY

Chapter 23. WEB/IMAGEREADY



THIS CHAPTER covers the preparation of Photoshop images for use in multimedia (on screen) and on the World Wide Web (online). Conversion to Indexed Color mode is covered first, then using Photoshop images in Adobe LiveMotion and After Effects, and finally, preparing images for viewing on the Web using Adobe ImageReady.



Since Web graphics are viewed on screen, this chapter includes a brief introduction to preparing graphics for presentation on monitors in general. When you're preparing graphics to be viewed on screen (as opposed to print), issues of storage and transmission of data become particularly important. We'll start with the conversion of images to Indexed Color mode, a technique that helps to shrink file sizes while preserving as much color information as possible.

Once the groundwork is laid, you'll be ready to dive right in to the real Web stuff. Ready to dive in right now? Then skip ahead to page 409, Photoshop to the Web.

Note: You'll be jumping back and forth between ImageReady and Photoshop for the instructions in this chapter.
