Exercises

  1. Now that you have an understanding of how slicing works as a concept, try putting it into practice on your Web pages. In the next hour you will look at interactive graphics. Before you get there, however, try experimenting with simply slicing large images to enhance download time. The benefits of this can be hugely beneficial to your Web site in terms of reduced download time alone.

  2. Learn a little more about HTML slices, which are a great way of being able to add editable text atop an image. Try this technique: If you have a message that you want to be editable within a graphic layout, simply add an HTML slice. Then, when the file is exported, you can format and edit the text in Dreamweaver without needing to edit the source file at any time

  3. Try creating nonrectangular slices in an image. Even if this seems a little strange as a concept, it gives you the opportunity to use Alt tags to identify different areas of an image. This is a perfect thing to do on an old school or work photograph where you want to identify numerous people.
