There are lots of times when an Internet user wishes that the digital images they are working with were a smaller size. Just because of the size of a picture, one has to face waiting times in numerous situations. For example, if you are attaching an image with an email or uploading it on a social network, you have to wait a considerable amount of time for a large image to finish uploading.
This is a problem not only for end users but also for web developers – the larger the images on your website, the longer page loading times faced by your site visitors. Here to offer a solution to this problem is a site called CompressNow.
