Previewing and saving the vector-mask animation

Now, you’ll put your animation to the test by previewing it to see if the wave action meets your standards.

1.
In the Animation palette, click the Play button (). When you are ready, click the Stop button () to halt the animation.

2.
If necessary, make any adjustments to the delay or the order of the frames to correct errors or set the timing the way you want it to be.

3.
Preview the animation again and continue to make adjustments until you are fully satisfied with the results.

4.
(Optional) Select the Preview In Default Browser button in the toolbox, or choose File > Preview In > and select your preferred Web browser. When you finish, close the Web browser and return to ImageReady.

5.
Choose File > Save Optimized As, specify the My_GIFs folder location, and type Waves.gif to name the file. Then click Save.

ImageReady saves the animation as a GIF file, using the current settings in the Optimize palette.

6.
Choose File > Close to close the original file.
