Reducing Photos easily with iPhoto
Posted by jane - July 18, 2012
A lot of websites nowadays have a Content Management System (CMS), this means you can edit your website easily, and in your own time. However do you compress your photos before uploading them onto your website?
Nowadays the resolution of Digital Cameras and Mobile Phones means the quality of your photographs can be very good but produce large files sizes, which is very good for print but not so good for websites.
Most CMS systems will have a compression facility to reduce your photos, but the original file sizes are still stored in your web space and can also have an impact on how quickly your website page loads.
So my easy tip?
Go into iPhoto, click on the photo you want to upload, then go to “Share”, and select “Email”, iPhoto will then scrunch it ready to email and open it up as a message, grab the image onto your desktop ready to upload. The image above was originally 3.5mb, it is now 250kb and more than adequate for any website.Comments Off
