How to optimize files and images of website?

httpsOptimizing Websites: Optimizing your website’s files is very important for better utilization of server resources. Even a high end server can fail to deliver the speed and performance that you look for, if the website is not optimized.

Following are the steps to achieve this:

Images:

  1. Always work and save your images with 72 dpi. More than this will not make any difference in quality of the picture as far as web is concerned.
  2. Save an image with text or less color as .gif. Gif is a highly compressed format.
  3. As a thumb rule, save an image with photograph or more colors as .jpeg. Since JPEG format has more colors in its color pal-latte, it will occupy less file size.
  4. Do not save as one single image file. Cut the same image into pieces.
  5. Do not use more than 10 images per page in your photo gallery.
  6. Never use images in formats other than .jpeg, .gif, .png.
  7. Do not directly upload the images to the server. Always compress the file to lower space occupying format such as .jpeg or .gif.
  8. Some designers use automated tools to slice the images. This affects the site performance drastically.
  9. Use thumbnails to show preview. Let the visitor decide which one to they want to see at high resolution.

Optimizing Websites Html Pages:

  1. Programs such as Front Page and Dream Weaver have indicators that will show the downloading time for the web pages that you create in them.
  2. Do not stack all the contents in on single page. Split the pages into different menus.
  3. As a thumb rule a single HTML page should not exceed more than 30 KB.
