Review answers

A1: An image placed on a Web page with the Image icon has to be in a Web-optimized format such as GIF, JPEG, or PNG. An image placed as a Smart Object can be in a variety of non-Web-optimized bitmapped and vector-based formats created by Photoshop, Illustrator, and Acrobat. GoLive converts the image to a Web-optimized format and retains a live link to the underlying source file. If you change the source file in its native application, your Web page will be updated automatically the next time you open the page in GoLive. If you resize the image on the Web page, GoLive goes back to the source file and creates new Web-optimized images for optimal appearance of the resized files without changing the source image.
A2: To place a Smart Object of any kind (Photoshop, Illustrator, or Acrobat), you simply drag the corresponding Smart Object icon from the Smart set of the Objects palette to your Web page. Then you set the source file for the Smart Object in the Inspector. A series of prompts leads you the rest of the way.
A3: Nothing! The great thing about Smart Objects is that your source files remain unchanged. GoLive recreates only the Web-optimized versions that appear on your Web page, leaving the source files untouched.
A4: The GoLive Save for Web dialog box appears whenever you place a Smart Photoshop object. It appears for Smart Illustrator objects if you choose a bitmapped format in the initial Conversion Settings dialog box.
A5: You can open the source file (in its native application) of any Smart Object by double-clicking the Smart Object on your Web page. If this doesn't work, Choose Edit > Preferences (Windows) or GoLive > Preferences (Mac OS), expand General icon in the left pane, and choose User Interface. Select the Launch Other Applications to Edit Media Files option in the right pane.
