If your website has PNG files used as graphics or background images, you may want to consider compressing those files in order to cut down on the amount of data your customers or visitors have to download before seeing your website. There isn’t an easy, default method for compressing PNG images within PhotoShop, but if you checkout this website called PunyPNG you will find a great tool that can quickly compress your PNG files with little to no loss of image quality. The free online service allows you to upload 15 images at a time!

A few days ago we were asked how to remove test orders and customers from a Magento development website. The following code can be run as a query on your Magento database in order to remove all test data. This will not affect test products – only orders, customers, tags, logs and a few other items. Please create a backup of your entire website/database before proceeding and do not perform these steps on a live store.
