This is a short video about how to optimize an image for your website correctly, using PhotoShop.  In this video I use PhotoShop CS3, however it is the same for older versions going back to PhotoShop 6.0 so you don’t need a new version of Photoshop to do this.

  • Thanks for sharing your post. Surprisingly there are still a lot of beginners out there!

    Optimizing media is important even in German!

  • Facilitative video Robert.
    Images are undeniably more enticing than text and do attract traffic . I feel that the file size should be small and a descriptive file name should be used .Thanks for the share.

  • Great information, there are a lot of people that just don’t realize how important it can be to optimize their media. When uploading pictures to a blog, especially high resolution photography it can really slow down the load times, something I noticed when I started using shadowbox on my site, it became important to ensure that all of my images were already optimized for the web before I posted it.
