How to Optimize Images for Web Performance without Losing Quality



Are you worried about the speed of your posts and pages and how much your images are affecting this? When starting a new site many users upload the full-sized images which slow down the site as it grows. In this video, we will show you how to save images optimized for the web to improve performance and keep your website loading fast.

In this guide we use Pingdom to analyze page speed, you can find Pingdom here:

If you have an image editing tool you prefer such as Photoshop, GIMP, or Affinity Designer most have a tool or option for resizing and/or optimizing images to be web-friendly. For a free tool you can use online, there is a website called TinyPNG you can find here:

If you would prefer your WordPress site to handle the image optimization, our top recommended image compression plugins can be found here:

For the specific size of the images you want to use for your site, you would want to check with the specific theme you are using as each theme has its own recommended image sizes.
