    Emporting image with slices

    zorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrro Level 1
      I had a jpeg with some text that I placed into my Dreamweaver page which was about 31k. I took the same image and put a slice on the text to make the text a a GIF and the picture a JPEG, when I went to insert it as a Fireworks Html, it was 2k in size. Is this true? Did it go from 31k to 2k?

          Sounds quite possible. Where you looking at the original as a FWs png file?
          In which case it would have had a load of extra information embedded so you
          could re-edit the file.

          The easiest way to be sure is to upload the image/s somewhere so we could
          look at them.

            If I understand your scenario properly: your original .jpg was 31k; after you modified it in Fireworks and output a smaller .jpg and .gif combination, the .jpg portion was 2k. You want to know if such a file size reduction is possible.

            Sure. For one thing, it sounds like you have two images, now, instead of one, so the smaller .jpg image will have a smaller file size. Plus, any time you re-save a .jpg, you lose more information and the file size becomes smaller. Finally, check the Quality on the export; the lower the number the smaller the file size will be. Since you're re-saving a .jpg file, you might want to raise the Quality to the highest value you can get.
