Image Compression

One of the main problems with web sites is load time. Load time is the amount of time it takes for a website to fully load or more importantly for something to appear on the page. This problems is primarily caused by the size of the images on the page. By image size i mean the file size not the visual dimension of the image, height and width that sort of thing. I am referring to the amount of memory the image uses in bytes that has to be transmitted to the end user. Though it's dimensions do play a part in it's file size in that the larger the images dimensions the larger its file size.
