Slicing an Image

The final goal of all your work on the home page you've been creating is to export the page as HTML, which you will do in Lesson 8. Your page currently consists of four buttons and several graphic elements—the logo, some text, a picture, and so on. If you exported the page now, you would get several large images along with the buttons. To see what that means, look at your home page. Click Show Slices and Hotspots on the Tools panel if you don't see the slices on the buttons. If you don't see the slice guides for your buttons, choose View > Slice Guides.

The red guides indicate the areas that will be sliced—or cut—when you export the page. Imagine using a ruler and a knife and cutting the canvas using the red lines as your guides. The resulting pieces would be the images you would get when you exported the page. Some of the images are large and could take longer to download. What you want to do is to create smaller slices that logically divide your page.
