I need to speed up the website
It s wordpress site. I have installed w3 total cache. also, triedto reduce the photographs resolution. But still it take a lot of time to load , the website as well as the photographs. Is there a way I can speed up the website.March 21, 2016 at 10:35 am #239655Alex ZaworskiParticipant
It looks like you’re not optimizing your images which is a process that’s independent of the resolution— you can start there to try to get your file sizes down at least. Here’s a tool I’ve used for that.
You can use Google’s PageSpeed Insights for a bunch of suggestions:

further image compression may help… google pagespeed was reporting that they could be reduced by maybe 15-18% (depending on the page).
I don’t think the speed of the site is too bad over-all though (on a good connection) I mean it has a pretty long time to document completion (repeat views are quite a bit faster), but that’s just the rest of the images being downloaded. The DOM content is loaded less than 2 seconds in, so the user can interact with the site pretty quickly.
I guess its kinda slow on like a 2G connection, but it’s a photography website with lots of photos so I guess the only option there would be to implement some scripting so that only much smaller images are downloaded on mobile devices. I don’t think optimizing the images at their current resolution will make a huge difference on slower connections.
