Do you know what a Jpeg is? I do! So do my mom and dad. As it turns out, almost everybody knows what a jpeg is. But do they know how to compress them? You might be surprised at how many people don’t know that there are tools out there designed specifically for compressing images in order to make your site load faster (like the one I’m using here). And if you want more traffic from Google, then loading speed should be an important factor of your SEO strategy.
Here are some of the best tools for compressing your images. These are free to use and you don’t need to do any sort of installation or configuration in order to get started with them:
Photoshop Express – this is a scaled-down version of photoshop that’s designed specifically for optimizing photos online using smart presets and also
has a built-in editor
TinyPNG – this tool converts your images to the .png format and uses compression techniques that are lossless, meaning it won’t lose any detail in the image. The best part about this is you don’t have to register for an account in order to use their service (although they do offer paid plans).
ImageOptimizer – want even better quality than what tiny PNG offers? This software will make all of your JPEGs into smaller files without sacrificing any visual quality at all. It also has some additional features like batch conversion and optimization parameters which can be user set up.
When you upload the original photo from Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 or Lightroom Classic CC 2019, then click on “Optimize” in the menu, it will automatically choose ImageOptimizer as an optimization option.
Compress JPEGs – this website is very similar to TinyPNG but instead of .png format they do compression for jpeg files which are used mostly on websites due to their small file size and good quality.
There are a lot of different tools you can use online that will help compress your images so they don’t take up too much space or slow down loading time. You should always try to make sure there’s a balance between image quality and speed load times when choosing whichever tool you like best from those available.
Additionally, if you’re using Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 or Lightroom Classic files it can do .jpg files.
Convert GIFs to JPEG – this site will convert your animated gif images into a series of smaller, high quality jpeg image files which are more suitable for web use.
Compress photos with a smaller file size – use the ImageOptimizer to do this.
Optimize and compress images before uploading them – if you want your web pages to load faster, then it is best if you optimize all of your graphics in advance so that people don’t have to download large files while they’re browsing through your site.
Load images responsively without worrying about image compression – when deciding how big or small an image should be on each screen resolution for example (e.g., desktop view vs mobile), let’s say I’m using Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 or Lightroom Classic CC 2019, then click on “Save For Web & Devices” from its menu bar at the top left corner of their interface which will allow you to compress images without a problem.
Telling the browser not to download images it doesn’t need – this is an additional way in which people can help make their websites load faster as it will make sure that web pages won’t be weighed down by unnecessary pictures and graphics, thereby making for much more streamlined browsing experience.
Use CSS sprites as another technique for image compression – if there are several small images that are used on each individual page of your site (e.g., icons), then they’re best combined into one single larger chunk so that visitors would have less data being downloaded from your server all at once while navigating through your content.
Blogging Tip: do i look like i know what a jpeg is
Avoid using too many pictures in your blog post. Instead, use bullet points or numbered lists to break up the text and make it easier for readers to follow along with what you’re saying. This also ensures that visitors won’t get distracted by a cluttered screen when they visit your page.
Try not to let images take up more than half of the space on each individual web page – this is another way in which people can help their sites load faster as viewers wouldn’t have to wait longer periods while large graphics are downloaded onto their computers before being able to start reading whatever content may be shown on said pages (e.g., blogs).
Always remember: if an image doesn’t pertain directly and immediately back to the content of your page, it’s best to not include that image on the site.
Make sure you’re always optimizing all images for size and quality before uploading them onto a web server – this ensures people won’t have to wait too long while they try to load up your blog or website in their browser tab.
The .jpeg file format is typically an option if you need high resolution graphics but don’t want large files; just be aware that many browsers do not support this particular type of graphic compression yet (e.g., Safari).
Consider using the “Save For Web” function from Adobe Photoshop which has been designed specifically with saving space as one of its most essential features when it comes down to compressing any
