Optimize Your JPEGs with PHP

If you’re anything like me, you put a lot of images and photographs on your Web site without opening them in PhotoShop to optimize them for the Web, first. Generally, if I download an image from the Web or I get an image e-mailed to me to add to the Web site, as long as it’s the right size, I just upload it and move on.

Unfortunately, however, those images are usually quite bloated and not compressed properly for the Web. With PHP, though, you can easily optimize an entire directory full of JPEG and PNG images with one simple script without losing any noticeable quality.

Google and PDFs

A few weeks ago, I came across an interesting post about Google and PDF files.  It seems that Google has very tight rules about how it indexes PDF documents, and you have to be careful about how you prepare your PDFs if you want them added to your site index.

Please share your experiences and expertise regarding PDF documents and how Google indexes them.
