Re: Should I use progressive JPEG images?

The optimize option really refers to the compression algorithm encoding, it may help with sizes of large files with lots of the same colours but for small files it can increase the size. Generally 99.9% of browsers will work for any JPG except for CMYK jpgs (opposed to RGB) which is part of the offical standard, PS will let you create them but Entourage for example and Safari wont display them correctly.

honestly the servers on Ebay cause more of a delay than anything you do to your Jpgs, even very small images can take time to load because the massive size of their databases and large amounts of traffic. I just use a baseline RGB Jpg and be done with it, it ensures compatibility and even a 100k image will load faster than 90% of people will notice.
