Do you know that every digital photo you take has some extra data that isn’t used on the Web? Or that files sometimes have color management data that isn’t used on the Web? This extra data simply makes files larger. The extra size makes them download slower and uses more bandwidth on your Web server.
The good news is that you can clean this extra data out of your files without affecting the image at all. I’ve tried several utilities and none of them were very easy to use. Now I’ve found something that works on a number of file types and is extremely easy to use. The program is called Strip File and it can clean GIF, JPG, PNG and HTML files with one click. You can either clean just a single file or a whole folder full of files with just a single click. Best of all, it is completely free. Download a copy and give it a try!
