howto2.17 How to optimise in PhotoPlus


To optimise your image using Serif PhotoPlus, you can use a tool called the Export Optimiser. This will let you try out different file types and compression settings – JPEG and GIF are the most commonly used types for bitmap images. You can also reduce picture dimensions of the exported image. It is possible to view up to four different settings at the same time. The helpsheet How to optimise in PhotoPlus will help you with this.

Click on the viewing options to compare picture quality at different settings, and with different file formats and sizes.

Each file format has different settings: the screenshot shows JPEG format and has a small optimized file size of less than 25KB, compressed from over 80KB with a 90% Quality setting. When JPEG is selected you can adjust image quality as a % with a slider.

For publication to the web it is essential to preview your work in different browsers. Serif PhotoPlus allows you to do this easily with the Preview in Browser tool.
