Compressing Images for a Lightning Fast Web Site
Jpeg, Png, and Gif Image Compression For Faster Web Page Load Times
With 50% or more of your site's visitors coming from mobile phones today, that beautiful photo you want to use at the top of the page may not load in time without image compression
first to help drastically speed up the time of your web page loading on mobile phones
Image Compression Helps an Image Load Fast
Image compression uses a technology that in essence makes a .jpeg, .png, or .gif image smaller in bytes, without changing the original height or width (unless you opt for that, which, actually might be called for if the photo or image you are using is really large).
Careful -- There Can Be a Downside
The downside of image compression is that you can lose image quality. So, the more compression you choose, the more quality you lose. You will have to experiment with different compression settings and optimally you'll use a "preview" tool that gives you a chance to try a different compression before saving. (Always be sure to keep the original file in a seperate folder so that you always have a copy of the best image quality for future projects).
If you carefully apply image compression to every image or photo on each page of your website, you can help ensure that each page loads much faster on mobile phones, which, as discussed in detail in other sections within MyGoogleSecrets.com, is an important factor in helping your website achieve and hold a number one ranking in Google.
