Home › Forums › CSS › optimize images??
Just looking for tips, best practices or tools about optimizing images for web.
Use Photoshops save for web tool. You should be able to then fiddle the options to reduce file size whilts minimising the negative impact on picture quality.
Once uploaded, set your expires headers correctly (using htaccess) and use gzip compression. Those three combined should make your images load nice and fast.
Also there’s a programme “Color quantizer” for optimizing the png images. It optimizes the png better than photoshop
Thanks for the quick replies.
How do i set expires headers? Can u give me some links to where I could learn and understand it better. Newbie here. Thanks.
I’m gonna try that one, thanks.
I’ve already told you. Use your initiative, Google exists for a reason.
