Slides from the presentation at WordCamp Orlando 2017
Nobody likes a slow site. Every year the weight of an average site keeps increasing, mainly because of image sizes. Optimizing images is the biggest win when it comes to your website speed.
In this presentation, we will focus on different image formats and steps to follow before uploading them to a website. We’ll discuss PNG, JPG, GIF, SVG and when to use each one.
We’ll set up a process to prepare images for the web, and go over tools to measure loading time. We’ll also look at some examples of before and after image optimization.
