Oops, do you guys know what size I should crop the images to, say 1024 x 768px?
@watson90 You don’t have to crop them, you can compress the file size (not resolution).
I was able to get one of your images that was over 1MB down to under 150Kb
This is what I did:
1. Uploaded the image to http://www.imageoptimizer.net/Pages/Home.aspx and then downloaded it.
2. I took the optimized image and uploaded it to http://smushit.com which compressed the file slightly more.
3. You’re done. Just upload the new images to your server. Remember to rename them what they originally were.
Thanks man! I’ll get that done asap :)
A noob error by myself: first website actually online.
@watson90 Congratulations. Glad I could help.
@watson90 Hey, I went ahead and compressed them for you. You can download the zip file that has the original images and the optimized versions.
You sir, are a good man!
Thanks very much :)
@Watson90 No problem. Just let us know when you get those images uploaded so we can test the difference. Oh and I renamed the files for you so all you have to do is drag and drop all of them in Filezilla (choose the overwrite option).
Hey @ChristopherBurton, I have uploaded the Optimized images now to the server and got rid of the HUGE ones!
@Watson90 That’s a significant difference in loading time.
I ran the test and seen it as 15s, is that still pretty bad? Because its a photography website it might get huge. Is it down to the host for speed also?
@Watson90 Mine was at 4s. I think it depends on your connection.
I would use a CDN service like Cloudflare (which I use) or W3 Total Cache
