Chapter 15. OPTIMIZING > Following the Optimizing Steps

Following the Optimizing Steps

There are several different parts to optimizing files. Use the steps below as a guide to optimizing files using the document window controls. (For the equivalent steps using the special Export Preview controls, see page 249.)

To optimize and export files:

1.
Use the tab controls in the Document Window to control the onscreen preview of the file (see the next page).

Tip

The onscreen preview allows you to compare different optimization settings as well as judge how long it will take the file to download.

2.
Use the Optimize panel to set the type of file, its compression, and other file characteristics (see pages 235 and 240).

3.
If you are optimizing a GIF file, control the colors in the file using the Color Table panel (see page 237).

4.
Set the transparency options (see page 245).

5.
Choose File > Export to export the file at the optimization settings. (See Chapter 20, "Exporting" .)
