JPGExtra - Sample Web Page
Typical web page before and after JPG optimization Typical websites, particularly shopping and photo sites, contain many individual JPG files on each page. After optimizing those JPG files with JPGExtra, web pages go from "empty" to "full" much faster.

  • Each image then loads slowly;
  • Page appears "empty" for longer.

Widespread Problem
I've found that almost ALL websites have JPG files containing hidden extras, ranging from a few bytes to tens of thousands of bytes per file. Large numbers of such files on a website can create a significant impact, more than just making the site seem slow:
  • Increased disk space requirements;
  • Higher bandwidth costs and higher peak bandwidth;
  • Longer page load times, which affects web rankings;
  • Greater memory usage, which can affect visitors' computers.
Anyone serious about website optimization will understand that it pays to strip ALL excess from JPG files to make them as lean and fast as possible.
