I use photoshop for my images and my sites work well, but I come accross these sites all the time that have these unbelievable defined images. The only way I can do this is to make the image so clear it takes forever to load.
Look at this site: http://csszengarden.com/?cssfile=http://bvproject.free.fr/a_flock_of_seagulls/bv.css

the background image is huge! How do they compress it so it loads so fast? Is there a secret to images that I am missing?

Please help!

Image help for css?

You have all the tools you need within Photoshop, you just need to read up on how to use them better. I've only ever used Photoshop yet I can produce images sharper than most yet smaller in filesize than most. Experiment with what you've got.
