    Photoshop is my best tool ever used to re-size images. In the latest version of Photoshop Content-Aware with Crop Tool, An amazing solution to re-size images without losing pixels or quality. This is an automated process even though we need a bit retouching after it. There are many tutorials available for exporting this.

    I want to share my experience using a wonderful image compressing and optimizing tool. a png/jpg/gif image compressor which allows you to compress 50 files at one go without any restrictions.An image usually comprises of the 80 % of the total KB.Here you can shrink your image by 70-80%.Also I found that you can avoid the use of plug ins and hence can make your website faster than any other.

    You can also reduce your ppt size in the same way without affecting the quality of the image.Colors can be replaces or changed using the existing colors of the image.Surprisingly i found that it makes no changes in the look of the image.

    In case you want to resize your image and shrink its percentage by your choice you can also do that by using the link can reduce it by 10%,20%….and so on as per your choice.

    Hope this information serves your purpose and you enjoy a faster way of compression and optimiziing tool.

    I’m not sure I follow the info regarding image size for retina display. When I save my photo at twice my blog’s max pixel width, it doesn’t fit into allotted space. How does your photo not get cut off when you post? Is there a trick to it that I missed? I am using Blogspot/Blogger, not sure if that makes a difference. Thanks in advance!

    Thank you for sharing such a brilliant article about resize the image, But as of i know when we insert the image on website (or) webpage, we shouldn’t resize the images by using html code. This will not be good to make it as a SEO friendly Website.

    For resize I usually use Paint. Yeah, that’s true.

    For optimization I prefer use third-party services like Kraken Web Interface. But if I’m lazy just upload and use EWWW WordPress plugin for handle it.

    The whole retina thing is extremely odd. Every website out there says you need to have sites load faster for mobile devices than for desktop (including Google Page Speed). Yet, mobile devices need images to be at least 200% larger than desktop screens in order to look good. This means those same images will take longer to download on mobile devices than on a desktop, which in turn penalizes your speed ranking. It’s ridiculous.

    I gave up doing any edits to my images. Now all I have to do is upload and publish. Thank you, Image Foo ( They create each image for me and deliver me the correct sizes and they compress for me. Now all I have to do is think of a good alt tag! Such a stress reliever!

    I don’t like to use image optimization plugin, I think if you are going to add one or two images in each blog post, use online image optimization service like It takes few seconds to optimize your images, I have used many online image optimization services and best. I am not affiliated with them just a happy user. 🙂
