Saving slices for web illustrator

Sep 12, 2013 6:46 PM

Tags: #illustrator #web #frame #slice #wire

Im trying to make a web wireframe in Illustrator CS6. From a tutorial I watched I started to make slices for different components on my web page by going object>slice>make. However when ever I saved it and opened the file up again the slices were gone. Also, I tried to save selected slices by going to file>save selected slices and also file>save for web but neither of these methods worked and the save slices never showed. I am new to illustrator and web design.

    See if "Show Slices" is listed in the "View" menu.

    If so, select it and your slices should appear.


    As for "save selected Slices", if you're on Mac look in "Documents>Images" folder. This is the default. If you did not select a folder they are probably there.


    Hope this helps.

    Select the gold border object, convert to slice by going to Object menu > Slice > Make. This would create slice for the selected object, now use Slice selection tool (hidden inside the slice tool) to select the slice then do "Save Selected Slices"

    Do you mean exporting to HTML? directly exporting to HTML is not supported from CS6 onwards, however you can do a preview in browser and then get to the HTML by "View Source" in browser.


    Can you explain your workflow, how you will use the exported text?
