Optimizing Images for Use in a Web Page

One of the powerful features of Fireworks is its capability to optimize an image and show you the smallest and best-looking format for the image. This is probably how I use Fireworks most frequently. To practice using this feature, open an image, preferably a photograph, in Fireworks. Because your image will be different from the one I'm working with, you will get different results than are shown here.

You can get a photo from your digital camera, from a collection of clip art, or from a free source such as NASA (www.nasa.gov/multimedia/downloads). Most of the images that you find on the Web have already been optimized so you might want to look for non-optimized file, using what is called a source file or high-resolution file. You need to optimize images to make sure that they aren't larger than they need to be because larger images mean longer downloads.
