    I have heard in many places that it's best to optimise your website images inorder to make your site load faster. The only method I can think of now is to run it through Photoshop and adjust the image quality on a scale from 1 to 12 to something less than 9. Is that the only way or are there really good tools specifically for this purpose?

    Install mod_pagespeed if you managed your server your own.

    There's a program called PNG Gauntlet that optimizes PNGs without degrading quality. The file size still won't be close to a compressed JPG, but I find it quite useful.

    As previously suggested, modpagespeed is a useful alternative:

    I have roughly 8,500 photos in Photopost alone, there is no way I could fix that many images but modpagespeed optimizes those as well.

    I took Jaxel's suggestion and used Photoshop's "Save for web" for jpegs and TinyPNG.com for pngs.
