Slices are areas in an image that you define based on layers, guides, or precise selections in the image, or by using the slice tool. When you define slices in an image, Photoshop or ImageReady creates an HTML table or cascading style sheet to contain and align the slices. If you want, you can generate an HTML file that contains the sliced image along with the table or cascading style sheet.
You can optimize slices as individual Web images, add HTML and text to slices, and link slices to URL addresses. In ImageReady, you can animate slices and create rollovers with them.
In this lesson, you'll explore different ways to slice an image in Photoshop and ImageReady, optimize the slices, and create four rollover buttons for the banner.
To learn how to animate slices, see Lesson 16, "Creating Animated Images for the Web."
