Step 4: Save And View Animation File

■ To optimize and save the newly created animation, choose File ^ Save Optimized As (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S) to get the Save Optimized dialog box. After selecting a folder where you want to store the image (I suggest using the \49 folder if you followed the recommendations made in the Introduction on copying images from the Companion CD-ROM), click Save to save the file.

■ To view the animation, open up a Web browser; then using Windows Explorer, find and then click and drag the water2-before.gif file onto the open Web browser, as shown in Figure 49.2. As soon as it displays, the animation begins to play. As we set the looping option to once, it plays once. To view it again, click the Web browser's Refresh or Reload button to play it again.
