JPEG Optimization Options in Photoshop

Posted on June 12, 2008 by Leave a comment

JPEG is the standard format for compressing continuous-tone images such as photographs. Optimizing an image as a JPEG format relies on lossy compression, which selectively discards data.

Note: Since image data is lost when saving a file in JPEG format, it’s a good idea to save the source file in its original format (for example, Photoshop .PSD) if you plan to edit the file further or create additional JPEG versions.

The web tools in Adobe Photoshop CS3 can help you design and optimize individual web graphics or complete page layouts. Use the Slice tool to divide a graphic or page into seamlessly interlocking pieces and apply different compression and interactivity settings to each segment. The Save For Web & Devices dialog box lets you preview different optimization settings and adjust color palette, transparency, and quality settings before saving in several web-compatible formats.
