Image preparation and optimisation
Much of the data required to display a web page in your browser may be in the form of image files, either graphics or photographs. If these files are very large, they can slow down loading of a page considerably, or if not properly optimised the images may be poor in quality.
Preparing images can include:
- cropping to eliminate unwanted areas
- colour correction
- sharpening (or softening)
- removal of blemishes, red-eye etc.
- other graphic effects
Optimising images for clarity and bandwidth/download efficiency is accomplished by:
- matching the actual image dimensions to the size it is to be displayed on a web page
- using the best file format for the type of image
- adjusting file compression to achieve the best compromise between quality and low file size
You can do this yourself using a graphics/image processing application. Alternatively you can make use of Square-Sun’s image preparation and optimisation service.
