You optimize your images in a program such as Paint Shop Pro. Read this

URL?

You compress them with your image/graphics editing program...Photoshop, Image Ready, whatever you're using to edit your images usually (these days) has some form of Optimize for Web.

Hint....Optimize is the last thing you should do before placing in web design. Don't keep opening/closing/saving/adjusting/fiddlingwith .jpgs - or you will end up with MUD :-)

IMHO
the absolute best program (and I've got them all) is smartsaver pro from
www.ulead.com take their free trial.
It'll do it in batch mode and it's results have smaller file size with
better visible appearance than anything else I've ever used. they've got
some high-end functions in the program like compressing different parts of
an image at different rates, etc. plus a good table/slicer JavaScript
utility built right in.

Hey Crash... I've never sliced an image in my whole life ... why should I?
It really doesn't speed up anything!

Although I'm a big PSP fan myself, I still prefer Adobe Photoshop Elements
for exporting graphics to web format. The tool is just better. The
previewing is better, and it's easier to switch between file types. I'm
still using PSE 1.0 and I can only imagine that 2.0 is at least the same or
even improved in this regard.

That's not the reason I am using it. Remember we were talking about this a while back? It's a really cool way of graphically designing a page layout. I stumbled across it in an old PS book...and a light bulb went off above my head like in a comic book. For years I've been trying to fit little pieces of images together... but with slice and dice ... design the whole page image and slice off what you want...bada bing...everything matches and fits. NO...I'm not talking about how Publisher or those other quickie webpage design things work...I'm talkin' bout just the graphics...not text.

There's an add-in (free) that Tina turned me onto that works great..but you can do it in many image editors as well...but the add-in is very convienient.

that's the other reason. ;-). actually I usually just use the slicer in
photo and do the file/ save as/ html, pull it into fp and drag and drop the
pieces into a new nested table arrangement.

it's for making "remote rollovers" and stuff. ;-) slicing actually increases
download time.
