Ever want to reduce a huge image on your site so it loads faster, but just don't have the graphics program or know-how to do so? Adobe to the rescue! You can upload the image off your own harddrive, and they will "optimize" it for you -- giving you a few different options/sizes to choose from. You can also pick .gif, .jpg, or both. Then just right click and save the image you like best after Adobe has worked their magic. It even gives approximate download times on a 28.8 connection. Try it out!

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Ohhh, you teach me so many things... You're awesome... thanks.

neato idea for people without a graphic program to do it for them! Thanks for sharing this, I'm bookmarking it for the next time I hear someone having an emergency compression issue ;)

If you do want to do a lot of this type of optimization, I'd recommend starting out with a trial of Paint Shop Pro. I started out with it in version 2 and its at 7 now! Graduated to Photoshop over the last few years, but still use PSP for some stuff :)

Just thought I'd babble on for a while. LOL!

I second the Paint Shop Pro demo from jasc.com to get started, too. I outgrew PSP a long time ago, but it's how I started and is very simple to get acquainted with! I really like the tubes feature it has as well.
