The need for speed.

For those who have seen my site, you would have noticed it contains some big images.

Lets cover the 2 big ones.
  • The header image
  • The background image
So the size they were being hosted on my site:
  • Header = 226kb
  • background = 658kb
Having played around with a number of tools to get them smaller without a noticeable loss in quality I discovered:
TinyPNG – Compress PNG images while preserving transparency

Ignore the png in the title, it converts jpg files as well.

After using this site my new image sizes are:
  • Header = 59.2kb
  • Background = 130.5kb
This is a substantial decrease in size, and in turn a very noticeable performance boost.
