Filed under: Photo — Tags: — abhishek @ 7:00 pm

Smush.it is a web site that provides the web service of OPTIMIZING IMAGES. Image optimization is an art that not many people master. There are many good image editing tools that allow us to get the best visual result for a certain file size but "under the hood" a lot more optimization can be done.

Smush. it is a service that goes beyond the limitations of Photoshop, Fireworks & Co. It uses image format specific non-loss image optimization tools to squeeze the last bytes out of your images – without changing their look or visual quality. You’ll get a report of how many bytes you can save by optimizing your images and all the changed images as a single zip for download.

Saving bytes has never been so easy – you point them in the right direction, and they will do the rest for you. A ZIP archive with optimized images will be generated for you.

Smush it comes in different flavours:

  1. You can upload a bunch of pictures in your browser
  2. You can provide us with a list of image urls or
  3. You can get a Firefox Extension or a cross-browser bookmarklet to optimize the images found on any web page.

This web site is really easy to use . you just have to paste the photos URL in the given box and press smush. In seconds the results  will be displayed to you categorised under new size and % savings. This is really a great site for reducing image size without loosing its clarity and quality.

Steps:

  1. Paste the url of the required picture in the given box
  2. Press the smush button
  3. Get the results and easily download the zip file containing the pictures.

But the real problem lies in the fact that it is designed for mozilla firefox and you can only download this software if you running this site on firefox browser. But this problem can be easily tackled.

It can be of real help to this new generation which tends to save its photos on the net rather than traditional albums.so use this web service and enjoy you guys.
