Part: III Image Topics > Optimizing Web Images

Chapter 28. Optimizing Web Images

Optimizing a graphics file for the Web means reducing the weight of the file as much as possible while maintaining image quality. This is an important step in creating Web graphics, since you should always be mindful of the download time of the pages on your site. Even though more and more people connect to the Web over high-speed DSL and cable lines, regular old dial-up modems aren't anywhere near obsolete, and graphics are still the number-one bandwidth bottleneck. No matter how many images you use on your site, you will see an improvement in performance by optimizing your images specifically for the Web.
