The web graphics sizes

    Hi,

    Although nearly everyone is using the broadband and very fast internet connections today, but do you still try decreasing the images, and web video used on your web pages?

    Is this point still a key factor in the graphics and multimedia world or not anymore?

    Thanks.

    I'd say yes,

    Even if people have faster connections, the average user stays on a website for four seconds before leaving.


    If your site takes 6 seconds to load on high speed, because of non compressed images, you've lost tons of customers - have you not?


    Even if everyone is a bit faster, being the fastest is still a large part of the online world.

    Absolutely. If you're hosting 5000+ files, then it all adds up. Bandwidth, storage, and user load time.

    Size as in the file size (and quality of the images?). I most definitely do, especially for graphics.

    Always keep the users in mind. Check your stats and see what % of your traffic is still on slow band or mid band spend.

    If you are starting out, aim for 50% to 60% compression on your jpegs. Anything that is vector looking, but a raster image, try to export in gif or png8

    Absolutely!
    What I do is compress to the the lowest point before noticeable JPG artifacts show up on a crisp LCD monitor.

    Nobody likes a slow loading site.

    yeah, I'm having trouble at the moment with 24 and 32 bit PNG's. They are just too big.
