#1.

Always Use http://tinypng.org/ for all your .png images
Many top web hosting companies will always recommend the already popular WP Smush.it plugin
for self hosted wordpress blog users who are in dare need of
optimizing their blog images for faster speed and load time. This is an
idea i will greatly support for larger website, blogs and forum who 
are using the wordpress CMS platform for their site.
Wp smush.it plugin works pretty great to compress
images but not as well as the perfect online tool the guys over there
at http://tinypng.org/ have provided to every one for free without any
option for premium or paid plan.
Tinypng.org will not only
serve for your post images but will greatly optimize your background
images and most of those static files we use for our overall website or
blog design.
On blogger blogspot powered sites
tinypng.org works great by helping you compress even files as large as
1mb to as low 10kb, it will help reduce the sizes of those large
background images while preserving the image or picture’s quality as
well as the transparency.

I
will recommend you also use tinypng.org free online image compression
software to optimize the images for your individual post contents as
too many images in a single post can affect the load time. Fashion,
photography tech and tutorials bloggers also needs optimize their images
as most of their individual post can contain as many as 10 pictures at
times.

Always Use http://www.jpegmini.com/ for most .jpg images
If
lossless compression for all your jpeg images is of a deep concern to
you, then you won’t waste another minute before hovering your mouse to
http://www.jpegmini.com/ to download a better .jpg image compression
and optimization tool that works offline and uses advanced techniques
to render optimal reduced jpeg images.
Jpegmini.com have got both
windows and Mac version and serves very well when it comes to reducing
image sizes without loosing the original picture’s quality.
#3

JPEG Optimizer by http://jpeg-optimizer.com/
To
me this is like the online version of jpegmini.com software that
renders better digital photo compression and optimum resizing. You can
easily use it for .jpg images by browsing for the image that needs be
optimized and choosing from the already provided compression level
ranging from 0-99 that you want to apply to the image.
A low
compression level will result in a much smaller filesize but image
quality will be lower. You can also re-size the picture if there is any
need for that.
