…One of the questions I get asked a lot is how do I optimize sprite images?…Are they any different than regular images?…And the answer to that is simply, no, they are not.…They can be just a normal image.…PNG, a GIF, or a JPG.…And so in general I tell people just to follow my little three step rule.…If it's a photo, use JPG.…Small icons, large color, use GIF.…If you need transparency, always use PNGs.…And so that's the same basic rule that…we're going to apply to our sprites as well.…So I have open here another version of the…same sprite sheet that we were working on earlier.…
You'll notice the order is sort of reversed,…but in many ways it's just the same.…And so in order to optimize this, what I'm going to do…is just go to the File menu and choose Save For Web.…Don't really have to do anything else to this.…Now, there's no transparency in this document, so…I don't necessarily need it to be a PNG-24.…I could go PNG-8.…PNG-8 is much the same as a GIF, but a lot of people just like…PNG better than they do GIF because GIF carries with it some sort of stigma.…
