To optimize and to publish images with Photofiltre:

With this tutorial it will learn to optimize images to be shown in his webpage, for it we will use the gratuitous program PHOTOFILTRE that you will be able to unload of from HERE (so large 2Megabyte format zip).

The aim to optimize the images or photographies is that these occupy less size in KB within the hard disk, and so to the visitors of our Web our pages will unload to them before.

Photofilter is a gratuitous program for its personal use that will allow us
to optimize, to change the size, and to even give effects to the images. Web of the author:

Sometimes our original photographies can have a size (wide and high) too much lifted. This size is moderate in pixels, and
following the use of the image the recommended maximums are:
- Normal images or of products - > wide 500 pixels, stop 400 pixels.
- Images of photographic galleries - > wide 1500 pixels, stop 800 pixels.

NOTE: if our image is not .jpg we will press the option knows ace-savar as we will put a name and we will select the wished extension. This will be the image that we will try.

2. We already know that our image has the suitable extension, so we are going to optimize it. For it once we give to keep, we will see that a new window is opened where we will fit compression.

To greater compression, the image will occupy less but it will have worse quality. fitting the quality to 90% the weight of the photo without much lost one of quality is reduced enough
