    You would not believe how important it is to optimise your images. I just saved 77.5% of one site’s total image filesize, without blinking.

    I just saved 10% off the total page size of my personal homepage at http://petermahoney.net – guess how?

    I just optimised the background image a bit. That’s all. Honestly, it pays to check these things once in a while!

    Show all images in a directory using PHP 

    This is a sweet script. It displays all the files in a particular directory. In this case it’s a folder full of user uploads, so it makes keeping an eye on things a breeze.

     foreach(glob('upl/*.*') as $file){
         echo '<img src="'.$file.'" border="0" alt="'.$file.'">';

    You can of course easily modify it to show only JPGs or other image types (if you’re pulling content from a directory of mixed file types) or to edit the echo so it returns images that link to user profiles etc.

    But this is it’s most basic form.
