When you actually go to save images as JPEG, GIF, or PNG, there are a lot of options (in most applications) to consider. That’s why it’s important to break down the steps to optimizing images. First, choosing the right format, then setting optimization settings, and finally further optimizing if necessary.

- [Voiceover] So, here's where the theory ends…and where we actually jump in and start to create images…and export and optimize them…in just about any program you have.…The first thing I wanna talk about is…when you're ready to save optimized web graphics,…it doesn't matter what program you're using.…Typically, what I wind up doing is this.…I'll pick the best format for the content first,…GIF, SVG, JPEG, PING,…whatever it happens to be.…I'll experiment with the quality settings if necessary.…Sometimes we don't need to do that.…
And then optimize them further afterwards.…And we'll talk about that a little bit later on.…And I felt I should put this in here,…but you should use Vector or SVG when possible.…SVG is used for all kinds of things…like we already mentioned on the web.…
These tutorials use programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and Sketch, but the tips apply equally well to any other graphics software.
