Save Extra Bytes by Yahoo Smush.it

Nov 19, 2009 3 Comments

In my previous article, Fireworks vs Photoshop Image Compression, I’ve concluded that Fireworks is better for image optimization. But if you want to further cut down the bytes, try Yahoo Smush.it. I did a quick test. I uploaded an image that was optimized by Fireworks and then Smush.it. The smushed image is 11kb less. Go try it yourself! Thanks to Darcy (@darcy_clarke) for suggesting this tool.

    I’ve been using it to optimize my images for a bit now and I love it. Every byte counts for sure!
