Excellent Tool to Optimize Images In Your Company’s Website

Has ExpressionEngine or Wordpress ever stalled or crashed while you’re trying to upload a great—but massive—photo to one of your website’s pages?

No graphic artist or photo-editing software needed

Many businesses don’t have high-end graphic design software or a graphic design team in-house. Often businesses use the “try it and see what happens” approach when trying to add images to their sites that have large file sizes.

Unfortunately, brute-force attempts to upload large files can cause Content Management Systems to stall or crash.

Keep this tool within reach

To prevent common problems caused by trying to add images with extremely large file-sizes to your website, we suggest you use to optimize large images before adding them to your site. is a free web-based tool that makes reducing your large image file sizes as easy as dragging and dropping photos (or browsing to the photo on your computer and selecting it) and then watching the magic happen as it reduces the photo’s file size by up to 90 percent with almost no change in image quality.

You can then download the newly shrunken image file back to your computer, and be on your way in about 10 seconds. Post it to your website and you’ll be using a photo that still looks great, but won’t crash your Content Management System and downloads faster for your website’s visitors.
