Task 2 How to Build GIF Files for the Web

GIF files are efficient, compact files perfect for use on the Web. GIF files enable you to build in transparency and animation while keeping the file size small. GIF files do not handle photographic images well, however. If you want your photographic images to maintain detail, consider the JPEG file format.

1. Open and Save File in Photoshop

Open the file you want to convert to GIF format. Select File, Save for Web. The Save For Web dialog box opens, and Photoshop creates a duplicate image, leaving the original image untouched. Click the Optimized tab to preview the file compression results based on your settings.
