For the best results, we highly recommend compressing your images before you uploading your images.
Compressing the images will give you a big reduction in file size without losing quality.
If you do not have access to an image editing tool (i.e. Adobe PhotoShop), the following free compression tools can be used to prepare your images:
- TinyPNG - Image Compression Tool*
- FastStone - Image Editor*

If you are using Photoshop, you can go to File > Save for Web & Device, and select the Presets to compress your image. We find that it doesn't compress it to the best size sometimes, and running it through an online compression tool will still give you the best results.
