Thanks a lot ! now @hompimpa : i have created a website using joomla. it is a jewellery website, so i had to upload high res images, but that make the page load very slow, how do i use it for joomla ? or are there any other methods to do the same ?
You are compressing your images, correct? Using “Save for Web & Devices…” in Photoshop you can get away with anything over 55 or 60 quality for JPEG…effectively reducing file size in half or more and maintaining quality…You can also save them as progressive if you wish at the same time…Then use a plugin like lazyload to further your page speed.
@kgscott284: thanks :) yes, i use the save for web devices in photoshop, but, being the website a jewellery one, the client wants to use really nice and HD photos, with a width of at least 800px, so even if i save the file for web devices each file goes over 200 to 300 kb, so when there are so many of them, the page gets stuck, also for the thumbnails i am using a 250px wide image that has to be HD too, and they are around 150 to 200 k, so if there are like 20 to 25 images on the page, the page tkes a lot of time.
