Lesson 17. Creating Rollover Web Visuals > Creating a slice from a hidden layer

Creating a slice from a hidden layer

In this procedure, you’ll create a slice from the Member_info layer just like the one you created for the Exhibits Info slice—but with a more efficient technique. You can create the slice from a layer that isn’t even visible. Because this doesn’t alter the view in Normal state, this makes it unnecessary to go back and fix the Normal state when you finish.

1.
In the Layers palette, select the Members_info layer but do not click the eye icon to make it visible.

2.
In the Web Content palette, select the Info Slices slice set.

3.
Choose Select > Load Selection > Members_info Transparency.

In the center of the image window, the animated selection border around the unseen layer boundaries confirms that the layer is selected, even though you can’t see any change in the art itself.

4.
Choose Select > Create Slice From Selection.

5.
Choose Select > Deselect, or press Ctrl+D (Windows) or Command+D (Mac OS) to deselect the layer but not the slice.

6.
In the Web Content palette, double-click the new slice name (17Start_14) and type Members Info to rename the slice. Press Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac OS).

7.
Click Normal.

Because you did not make the Member_info layer visible during this procedure, the Normal state is still as it was and there is no need to correct it as you had to do for the Exhibit Info slice.
