I have an image that will be my website background that is currently 2562hx1700w. it is 512kb when I save for web and devices as a jpeg. The website is a single page layout that is an under water scene and I need to keep the quality but the image size is really big for the web.

Does anyone know any other solution to compress the image but keep the size? What is the file size I shouldn’t go over?

I’ve scene large backgrounds on other sites but they’re not as near the file size. Why is that?

- The noise in the water area would contribute higher file size. If you just remove it or add some blur to the noise, it will help reducing file size.

- In Fireworks, you can select particular area of image and apply different compression levels. This way, you can preserve good detail on important areas (the 3 people and fish) while severely compressing remaining plain areas:
