Web Designers Offered Free Graphic Services

Ulead Systems, Inc. this week announced the launch of the Ulead Graphics Optimization Toolkit, a free online service which enables Web designers to optimize the images for use on their Web sites.

Similiar to features found in Ulead SmartSaver 3.0, Ulead's image optimization utility, the Graphics Optimization Toolkit uses an interactive, WYSIWYG interface. This allows users to produce Web-ready GIF, JPEG and PNG images.

In the simple process, users upload the image they wish to optimize and choose from various preset options. They are able to click the Preview button which allows them to achieve a balance between quality and file size. The image can then be saved, providing them with an optimized image for use on their Web page.

Ulead Systems plans to add more online graphics handling services such as this to encourage repeat visits and play a leading role in the global Web graphics design community, according to Lotus Chen, senior vice president of Ulead Systems.
