Photoshop CS5 is superb software obviously - however i really believe that it isn't the best for jpeg compression for web images.
Previously i have used SmartSaver Pro 3 by Ulead, with superb results - however i note the product is no longer made or supported, as i've recently got a new computer and i'm on a 64 bit system i thought i'd ask here at WebmasterWorld to see what people were using for image compression for websites
... my personal requirement is almost exclusively for producing jpgs for ecommerce sites.
pay or free is not an issue for me, i just want something that gives smaller file sizes than photoshop with a similar quality, i bought the aforementioned software several years ago and it has served me well, but i'm figuring there could be a new kid on the block, so to speak.
alternatively am i missing a trick with photoshop, does anyone have a system for reducing file dimensions and saving as a jpeg that works well.
(given a scenario, where i'd like to make thumbnails and 2 or 3 other sized images from the same large, high resolution source file.
