You can reap marketing benefits for your project by making an interactive gallery with rollover effects. When it comes to displaying work online, Adobe ImageReady is the tool of choice for producing optimized graphics. ImageReady is Photoshop's sister product designed to produce web graphics at screen resolution (72 pixels/inch). You used ImageReady briefly in Chapter 7 and will use more of its features in this section to create optimized web pages. The process begins by cutting a sample file into slices—rectangular areas that divide an overall image into parts. You'll optimize each slice and then create rollovers using the slices, adjusted layers, and layer style effects. Rollovers control the web page's behavior when a visitor finally interacts with it in a web browser.
