For years, Photoshop has been one of the leaders in the graphics design arena, becoming the industry standard for photographers, print designers and game developers alike. While Photoshop handled many image editing tasks well, designing graphics for the Web brought on a new set of requirements. Enter Adobe ImageReady. Adobe ImageReady allows users to optimize graphics and text for fast downloads, create slices and rollovers, animations, interactivity and much more. VTC author Rick Martin, begins by teaching the basic tool set and then moves on to more advanced concepts. Work files are included.
