CSSSpriteGeneratorA Single Function Site
CSSSpriteGenerator is a tool that helps reduce the number of HTTP requests made for images by creating what is know as CSS sprite. This technique can be very effective for improving site performance, particularly in situations where many small images, such as menu icons, are used.
To be able to use the tool, just upload a ZIP file containing individual images and it will return a combined image and all the CSS background-position rules required to display each component image. It accepts and can generate PNG, GIF and JPEGs and provides a range of options allowing you to tailor the output image and CSS to your site.
As an added bonus, the source code for the CSS Sprite Generator is available for download and is covered by a BSD license which allows both personal and commercial use.
