Compared to desktop computers, tablets and smartphones have a much more limited processor, slower connection speeds, and smaller storage capacity. As a result, special consideration is required when designing and delivering site designs on mobile devices.
Muse includes features that can help you optimize the graphics displayed in the mobile layouts to ensure that the site loads quickly and performs acceptably.
- Press Command/Control+7 to display the desktop layout, and then double-click the A-Master desktop file to open it in Design view.
- Open the Assets panel by clicking its tab in the panel set to make it active. Or, if it is closed, choose Window > Assets.
- Select the large background image of the green hills. The asset is highlighted in the Assets panel.
- Click the asset's name, background.jpg, to expand the list of instances used in the site (see Figure 27). Notice that the background image file is listed three times, with two different icons, indicating that it is used in both the phone and desktop layouts.
