Optimizing images for the Web

Creating small graphics files is key to distributing images on the World Wide Web. With smaller files, Web servers can store and transmit images more efficiently, and viewers can download images more quickly. You decrease file size by saving your artwork in one of several compressed file formats. For basic optimization tasks, you can export artwork in Illustrator as a GIF, JPEG or PNG-8 file.

You can also export your files for the Web in other formats such as the vector-based Flash SWF, format for interactive, animated Web graphics, and the SVG and SVGZ (Scalable Vector Graphics and compressed SVG) formats, which work well with HTML and JavaScript. For more informations on exporting images for the Web, see "About exporting artwork" in online Help or Chapter 14 of the Adobe Illustrator User Guide.
