How To Optimize Images For Good Traffic And SEO
6:30 PM Blogging Tips.
The average size of a web page has been increasing at tremendous rate over the last few years. Research carried out by HTTP Archive about few months ago, reports that the average page size has now became 1.25mb. For users with a decent broadband connection this is not a problem, but for users that still using slow dial-up connections or poor mobile data networks this poses a real issue.
Compress Your Image without loosing the quality
One of the best way to reduce the size of your web pages and increase load times is to properly re size and optimize your images. Using images that are larger than they will be displayed in your web page means that there is a lot of unnecessary data being used.Once you have resized your images there is a awesome handy tool which am recommending, like TinyPNG and TinyJPG to reduce the size of the images further. These tools work by removing unnecessary data from the images and optimizing the use of colors. These two tools are similar at their work.

These sites reduces the file size of your JPEG/PNG images. Every uploaded image is analyzed to apply the best possible JPEG/PNG encoding. Based on the content of your image an optimal strategy is chosen. The result is a quality image without wasting storage or bandwidth! When you upload a JPEG?PNG file, the image is analyzed. Textures, patterns and colours are automatically identified. The encoder creates an optimally compressed JPEG/PNG file based on that information. The final result is compared with the orginal and fine-tuned. Distracting JPEG/PNG artifacts are minimized without big sacrifices in file size. Unnecessary metadata is stripped as well. You will get an optimal image, every time! JPEG/PNG is the most popular format for photos on your websites and apps. Many JPEG/PNG files do not use optimal compression, wasting valuable bytes. Balancing quality and small file size used to be a time consuming task that only humans could do. Not anymore. Let us worry about compression.
