Optimizing images with the WTV-Zone

Optimizing images with the WTV-Zone Knocks 60 kb's off of the file size without ANY quality degrading! For those tough Lard butt images or any jpg image optimizing at all. The WTV-Zone will not do this with gif images it will change the extension to jpg from gif. It will not accept any animated images. So for jpg's or PNG's only. I have not tested PNG's.

With this particular image I was having trouble using the quality setting method at ImageMagick without degrading the image to where it was not appealing to my eyes. So I output with the quality setting left blank. Here is that image. It is 64kb


I beamed the above into my WTV-Zone Account. Then I clicked on the height x width to the right of the file name which takes me to the WTV-Zone's Mini-Magick and image tools. All I do is rename the image.

Inside of the WTV-Zone Mini Magick are these options you can select.

Zone Magick
powered by Image Magick

Please do NOT resize or work on animated Gifs!

Image Magick Image Manipulation

Resize graphic to ____% of original size, or height by width.

Rename image:

Keep Existing Image

Overwrite Existing Image

I select "Keep Existing Image". I could select "Overwrite Existing Image" if I like and not rename the image.

I do not do anything else. I am copying the image basically.

This image copy is 4 kb's! WOW huh! Here is that image. Compare the image quality and you will see no difference I predict.


The following is the 64kb image I run it through the WTV-Zone's Mini Magick adding resizing smaller to 240x200.

Where the text reads:

Resize graphic to ____% of original size, or height by width.

It is 3 kb's


Note: Clear comments has moved from resize to output.
It is at the bottom of this screen under Miscellaneous options:

These are the settings I use for a jpg.
(gif is a little different)
I set everything the same with one exception
Defining a quality percentage
Set the quality at 50% the image is a little over 10kb

Leaving the quality parameter blank the same
image with all the same settings is over 70kb
