Image Optimisation

Image Optimisation


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.
All files used to create your slides (i.e. images/spreadsheets/etc) are downloaded to your workplace digital signage media player(s) and stored locally (until the slide is updated or deleted). Try to optimise and compress your files as much as possible to reduce data usage.
Try these free online compression tools to prepare your images:

The Vibe image manager support image filenames using alpha-numeric characters and the underscore/hyphen symbols. Before you attempt to upload a new image, remove any unsupported characters (e.g. & ampersands, ( ) brackets, + plus etc).
