Artisteer v4 – Image vs Background Compression

Artisteer v4 – Feedback Related to Site size and image vs background compression

Issues: Image compression settings only apply to backgrounds no images added to slides on header/footers. This causes the website performance to suffer. An image at 100k used as a background with 80% jpeg compression (this option is setup in the artisteer settings for global image compression and file type, PNG vs JPG) is great and works well.

However, this same process with a slideshow image, header image or footer image give a file size of 2mb for the same image.



change single image slide shows or footers to background images and make sure to use JPG’s instead of PNG due to lack of PNG compression  in artisteer.
