    Presently, I use JPEG and GIF for compressing my graphics. Is there a better
    way to compress graphics (free) without losing picture quality. I am trying to optimize my graphics on my site for better and faster loading.
    Thank You

    I don't think you'll find a compression any smaller than GIF/JPEG that is also compatible with web browsers. If you have a fairly standard webpage with just JPEG/GIFs (Not with Flash widgets spammed everywhere like some sites do :mad: ) then chances are you need a better host (If it is slow for everyone) or a better internet connection (If it's just slow for you).

    Take a look at either IrfanView and / or XnView, both provide tools for you to reduce down the file size without loss.

    For small image files, PNG may be a good format if you don't need non-RGB color spaces.
