We ask that you compress every image and PDF file that you need for your webpages prior to uploading them. This will save storage space, bandwidth, and most importantly, download times for our users. No image should be more than 250KB in size, even those used as the backgrounds for our marquees. Compressing them using the tool listed below will keep them that small.
You can use the free image compression tool at iloveimg.com to compress your images. This free tool will shrink the size of your file down substantially while not losing any of its visual quality.
We also ask that you compress every PDF prior to uploading them by using ilovepdf.com. This free tool will shrink the size of your PDFs by up to 90%, with no loss of noticeable quality.
These are very useful tools for keeping our sites light and fast. Use them.
