Chapter 19. Designing for the Web > Defining and Editing Web Data Variables

Defining and Editing Web Data Variables

When you work with images in ImageReady, or now Photoshop (), you can define variables to drive the graphics in your Web document. Data-driven graphics make it possible to create multiple versions of an image fast and precise. For example, you need to produce several Web banners using the same template. Instead of creating each banner, one at time, you can use data-driven graphics, to generate Web banners using variables and data sets. Any image can be converted into a template for data-driven graphics by defining variables for layers in the image. A data set is a collection of variables and associated data. You can switch between data sets to upload different data into your template. When you combine a Defined layer with a data set, you can use the information to swap images based on input variables.
