JPG Compression - The Bandwidth Saver Article - Conclusion

It's time for something a little different. Instead of the usual PC product review, today Cameron "Mr.Tweak" Wilmot has written an article for webmasters and site owners showing how they can significantly reduce the amount of bandwidth they use by compressing JPG images, one of the most common formats for web images. If you own a website and don't yet have knowledge in the field of JPG compression, you should find this very interesting indeed - Save money on bandwidth and please viewers at the same time with quicker loading webpages.

I hope this short article has been helpful and interesting to those who didn't know much about JPG compression before reading. If your website is based heavily around JPG images which aren't yet compressed, you should be able to halve your bandwidth usage per month, at least. Remember though, there are also a cavalcade of GIF optimization programs out there if your website has a focus on GIF images more so than JPG, a Google search proves this.

 

I didn't set out to put hosting companies out of business by posting this article, but the facts are simple - with the way the advertising dollar is right now, us webmasters need to do everything possible to cut back on costs while maintaining quality websites, and in this case, image quality.

 

If you have any comments or other suggestions about saving bandwidth, please leave your comments in our Application & Web Development forum.
