Derek Tonn, mapformation, LLC
I skipped this one before, but several people have been raving about it. The session is supposed to go beyond “save for web”.
- Clip art kills! The extra bandwidth wastes electricity for unnecessary graphics.
- 8-bit png is better for logos the gif… It compresses better and smaller. Interesting.
- remove exif
- remove excess colors
- Apply unique zonal compression!
He also talks about gif and pdf techniques.
- All the great tools are listed on handouts
For an example, he takes the logo on the HighEdWebDev site from over 100K to under 9K. All without decreasing the quality!
I need to remember to run all of our images through this process.
