Preparing an Image Ready workspace

Before you begin working on a new file, you'll jump from Photoshop to ImageReady and then define an ImageReady workspace for the tasks you'll do in this section.

1 In Photoshop, click the Jump To ImageReady button (^ , ) at the bottom of the toolbox to switch from Photoshop to ImageReady.

Note: If you do not have enough memory to run both applications simultaneously, quit Photoshop and then start ImageReady.

2 In ImageReady, choose Window > Workspace > Reset Palette Locations to make sure that all palettes are in their default positions.

3 Drag the tabs of the following palettes out of their palette groups to separate them as stand-alone palettes:

• The Info palette (from the Optimize palette group).

• The Color Table palette (from the Rollovers palette group).

4 Click the close boxes in the following palette groups to hide these palettes:

• The Color palette group (the Color, Swatches, and Styles palettes).

• The Rollovers palette group (the Rollovers and Layer Options palettes).

5 Drag the Optimize, Color Table, and Layers palette groups to rearrange them in your work area as needed, and resize them to take advantage of the available space.

6 Choose Window >Workspace > Save Workspace.

7 In the Save Workspace dialog box, type Optimize_14, and click OK.

The Optimize_14 workspace option now appears on the Window > Workspace menu, named to help you remember that you created this workspace in Lesson 14 for work with optimizing. You can reset your workspace to this configuration of palettes or go back to the default workspace at any time by choosing the one you want to use on the Workspace submenu.
