Photoshop > Save for Web & Devices. Voila.

Photoshop has some of the worst optimization for screen display. This is terrible advice if you stop there.

Subtext to this thread:

Dear authors, the unoptimized images you’re cramming into item pages from cheap, slow servers is making Envato look bad. Fix that. Kisses, Envato

Why not give an alternative to this “terrible” advice? No time to write something constructive?

Thought it was obvious, but you have to read the article: http://notes.envato.com/general/image-performance-tips-for-authors/

That’s why @UniikMedia’s suggestion completely missed the point and is bad advice.

“When you export your images from Photoshop, always use the “Save for Web” option. Once your image is exported, you can make it even smaller with an image optimisation tool. “

It says you can make it even smaller – It mentions nothing about save for web being awful
