If you want a fast loading Website, optimized graphics are a must. In Linux, you can make your graphic at least one-quarter to one-half the original size. How? It's simple with xv and Image Magick, two interactive image manipulation programs.

Try it and see. Load the graphic using xv, ImageMagick and your current image manipulation program. Save each one under a slightly different name. Compare them to each other. You will be amazed at the difference in size. You'll also find that your Website will load faster and be easier to use for every visitor, no matter their connection speeds.

For more information, check out ImageMagick.org and John's World of xv.
