- How can I resize images?
- What software do I use to optimise images?
- Why should I resize images?
These are the three common questions which have been addressed to me several times in the last 10 years.
This article is for those who are looking for an ideal image optimisation solution which can run on desktop systems as well as mobile & tablet platforms.
You will also find a variety of online image optimisation tools which can be used via a web browser.
Coming back to the topic...
The web is full of rich content, images are one of them.
An image is a pixelated representation of several data blocks. That's why it takes longer to download especially via the internet.
If you own an ecommerce website, how are you going to resize your 5000+ images in one go?
You do not have time to optimise them one-by-one.
Unless your website has a built-in image processing application, you must optimise your images manually.
Even then, there are always better options available than your built-in image processing application because it may fall behind with the image processing algorithms.
It may sound hard but it is easier than it seems.
With the right tools and tutorials, you will be able to understand the best possible format for your application as well as being able to optimise your images.
That's why today I will share the tools I use to resize and optimise images so that they are web friendly.
Let's get started.
