Lesson 16. Optimizing Web Images > Reducing the color palette

Reducing the color palette

To compress the file size further, you can decrease the total number of colors included in the Color Table palette. A reduced range of colors will often preserve good image quality while dramatically reducing the file space required to store extra colors.

Currently, 128 colors compose the 16Start_2.psd file, as shown in the Colors option in the Optimize palette, under Color Table. Your ultimate goal in this entire section is to get that number down to 32 without ruining the appearance of the graphic.
