First of all, why do we have to re-size an image for a web page in the first place? You’ll notice that when you open a webpage it takes a certain amount of time to load, this is really dependent on the sizes of the images contained in the website, the larger the image the longer the wait. But if you re-size, or ‘optimise’ an image you will have a faster loading website, and potentially people who won’t skip your website due to agonisingly slow load time.
There are plenty of ways to optimize an image, but the one way that will improve the speed the most, is by making your graphics as small as possible.
