1Slices are rectangular areas of an image that you can define in Photoshop or ImageReady for individual Web optimization. With slices, you can create animated GIFs, URL links, and rollovers.
2You can actively create image slices by selecting areas in the image with the Slice tool. Other active methods of creating slices include converting layers, guides, or selections into slices using commands on the Layers, Slices, or Select menu. Indirectly, auto slices are created automatically for areas in the sliced image that you leave undefined as you use the other methods of creating user slices.
3Using the Magic Wand tool (or another appropriate selection tool) in ImageReady, select the object, and choose Select > Create Slice From Selection. Or, if the object is a layer, select it and choose Layer > New Layer Based Slice.
4Select the slice with the Slice Select tool. In the Slice Options dialog box (Photoshop) or Slice palette (ImageReady), choose No Image from the Type menu. No Image slices can contain a background color, text, and HTML source code, or they can serve as a placeholder for graphics to be added later.
5Slices can be created in either Photoshop or ImageReady; they are always rectangular in shape; they can be defined as having Image, No Image, or Table content. Image maps can be created only in ImageReady; they can have any shape; and they always have image content. Both slices and image maps can be configured as hotspots with links to other pages. Both can be configured with rollover states, which you can learn more about in Lesson 17, “Creating Rollovers.”
