Specifying browser messages

    You can specify what messages appear in the browser using the Message and Alt options. These options are only available for Image slices.


    Lets you change the default message in the browser's status area for a selected slice or slices. By default the slice's URL is displayed.


    Lets you specify an Alt tag for a selected slice or slices. The Alt text appears in place of the slice image in nongraphical browsers. It also appears in place of the image while the image is downloading and as a tool tip in some browsers.

    In ImageReady, if the Message and Alt options aren't showing, choose Show Options from the Slice palette menu, or click the Show Options button Show Options button on the palette tab to view them.

To specify a browser message:

  1. Select a slice. If you are working in Photoshop, double-click the slice with the slice select tool to display the Slice Options dialog box.
  2. In the Slice Options dialog box (Photoshop) or the Slice palette (ImageReady), type the desired text in the Message text box, Alt text box, or both.
