BLOG IMAGE PERFORMANCE IS NECESSARY
Image format and what Is the Ideal File Size for an Image?1 minute read
I would like to thank Marianne, owner of DESIGN YOUR OWN BLOG who gave me permission to link to her post where she is talking about blog image performance.
Is blog image performance necessary?
Your users don’t want to wait more than 3 seconds for your page to load.
Google pays attention to your website speed and ranks it accordingly.
So I’d say yes, it’s very necessary.
If you care about your readers this post is a MUST READ.
There are 3 steps (4 for JPEGs) we should take to optimize our images:
Always resize the image to the largest size it will appear.
Further reduce JPEG file size with these tricks.
Reduce quality on save.
Run it through a lossless image compression tool.
This Jekyll template was crafted in order to be used by photobloggers. If the photos you upload are not optimized, the page loading time will increase significantly!
DO NOT upload an image at its full size, such as 2500 x 3500, and then resize it in the settings after you’ve uploaded it to your blog!
So, dig in her informative post and learn how you can have a fast loading photography website!
