If defining data sets for a large quantity of files, it's usually more efficient to perform these tasks in the output program, such as Adobe AlterCast.

• Specify the name of the first data set, in the Data Set menu.

• Select each variable from the Name menu under Variables.

• For Visibility variables, specify a value of "visible" or "invisible."

• For Text Replacement variables, specify the new text.

• For Pixel Replacement variables, click the Choose button to identify the location of the replacement file.

Click the New Data Set button and repeat the process as many times as necessary until all scenarios for the image are created. Then click OK.

TRY IT To optimize each graphic created based on the template, you have several options:

• In ImageReady, choose Image I Preview Document and then select the appropriate data set from the Options bar. Select the appropriate output settings in the Optimize palette and choose File I Save Optimized As to define the filename and location in which it should be saved.

• Save the file as a PSD and import it into Adobe GoLive, where you can assign data sets from a database of content, and then use AlterCast to actually output each individual graphic.

• Use AlterCast or a custom script to output each graphic.
