As internet speeds are growing faster and bandwidth limits are being lifted, photographers and other creative professionals finally have the opportunity to make their images appear in all their high-res glory online. Instead, images would have to be compressed to reduce their file size also reducing quality and displayed in galleries as tiny thumbnails. Page load time is still important but as technology has improved, it no longer takes 5 minutes to download a single high-res image. Displaying pictures at a large size embedded into blog posts or as a full-screen gallery is a great way for photographers to show off their work to maximum effect. Before you upload your images to WordPress, you should optimize them for viewing on the web. If you use a different image editing program that does not have a compression tool, you can use an online tool like Image Optimizer to compress your files before putting them on your website.

It thoroughly describes several techniques to reduce the number of bytes we send to our visitors, explaining how they all work and when we should use each. The article can be summarized in just two recommendations:. So far, so good. The core idea is, use images with the right format when you need them. The problem we usually face at least, we do at Nelio is always the same: we know how important it is to keep your images small, but sometimes we simply get it wrong and upload a huge image to the media library.
