Lesson 18. Animating GIF Images for the ... > Previewing and saving the layer-mask...

Previewing and saving the layer-mask animation

You’ve almost finished your final element for the Web-page project.

1.
In the toolbox, select the Preview Document button () to preview the animation, and then click the button again to stop it.

Or, you can click the Play button and then the Stop button in the Animation palette.

2.
Choose File > Preview In > browser to select an available Web browser.

3.
When you finish previewing the animation, close the Web browser.

4.
Choose File > Save Optimized As.

5.
Select the My_GIFs folder and make sure that the name is Whale.gif. Then click OK.

6.
Close the Whale.psd file.

Give yourself another pat on the back—you’ve finished all four elements in the Web page project.

If you want to test your images in the Web page you viewed at the beginning of this lesson, you can go to the desktop and drag contents of the My_GIFs folder into the Lessons/Lesson18/images folder to overwrite the GIF files inside. (Click Yes when messages appear asking you to confirm this action.) Then double-click the 18End.html. When the page opens in your default Web browser, it will utilize your GIF images rather than the samples provided for this lesson.
