Why Reduce Image Size?
With a properly resized and compressed image you will be able to upload and download faster without impacting the quality of the image and in the process you will improve the visitor’s experience and enhance your SEO.
What to do?
Resize your image (single image or multiple images) and then compress the resized image(s) with a free, easy to use website iloveimg.com
As an example let’s consider a 1990 KB image which was converted to a 220 KB image:
Original Image – 1.99 MB (1990 KB)
The Image above has been reduced in size to 639 KB (refer below). Image quality: Good!
The resized image above was compressed to 220 KB (refer below). Image quality: Good!
The original image 1.99 MB (1990 KB) was first resized and then compressed to the final 220 KB. The overall size reduction was 89%
|Original Image||2960 x 1440||1.99 MB |
|Original Image Resized by 50%||1480 x 720||639 KB||50%|
|Resized Image Has Been Compressed||1480 x 720||220 KB||89%|
Resize and compress images before uploading them to your WordPress website to enable faster uploads and downloads, improve the visitor experience and enhance your SEO.
