Chapter 15. OPTIMIZING > Controlling the Onscreen Preview

Controlling the Onscreen Preview

As you optimize images, they can drastically change their appearance from the original artwork. The Preview tabs allow you to see the effects of the optimization settings on the image.

To use the preview tabs:

  • Click the Preview tab in the document window to see a full-screen preview of the artwork 1.

    Figure 1. The Preview tab in the document window


    or

    Click the 2-Up tab to split the window into two sections so you can compare the original artwork to the artwork at the current optimization settings.

    or

    Click the 4-Up tab to split the window into four sections so you can compare the original artwork to the artwork at three different optimization settings 2.

    Figure 2. The 4-Up tab lets you compare different optimization settings of the image.


    Tip

    Although you can use the zoom and magnification controls to change the size or position of the preview, it is usually better to optimize an image at the 100% view. This lets you see the image without exaggerating or minimizing the effects of the optimization.
