Optimizing image files for the web

The goal of optimizing for the web is to produce an image with acceptable quality at the smallest file size.
Basic steps:
1. In Photoshop, open the image you want to save for the web.
2. From the menu bar, choose File > Save for Web.
3. Select the optimized file format:
Gif –best for graphic images with large areas of flat color
Jpeg –best for photographic images
4. Adjust the quality settings to achieve the best image with the lowest file size.
5. Save the image.
