Saving images out in PNG format is nothing new for web designers, but when working with textured artwork it’s often tempting to simply save everything out as a PNG-24. While the output looks great, file size can be a real issue. I show you how I often make the call between PNG-24 and PNG-8 when working with textured artwork as well as a technique I use to optimize the fidelity of the design and keep file sizes at a minimum.
