How to Enable Save For Web Option in Gimp

The open source image editor Gimp is seriously an alternative to Adobe Photoshop, but it lacks some features. For example, ‘Save for web’ option. This option helps users to reduce image size considerably without losing its quality much. This is great for people who want to upload their images on to email or web.

Here is how to enable ‘Save for web’ option in Gimp (Windows).

1. Download Save for Web extension for Gimp from here and extract the file. Copy the exe file to:

For Windows XP: C: - Documents and Settings - username - Gimp-2.6 -plug-ins 

For Windows Vista and Windows 7: C: - Users - username - Gimp-2.6 -plug-ins 

2. Restart Gimp.

 This plug-in provides options to reduce file size of an image, including setting compression quality, number or colors, resizing, cropping, Exif information removal, etc.
