Un-optimized .jpeg - 155kb

Why have web optimized images?

A large part of your user experience is page loading time. A page loads in succession, meaning that a slow loading element can hold up a the rest of a webpage. Un-optimized images are a typical cause of the “missing sidebar,” as the sidebar often loads after the header and footer.

Page loading time is a big part of the user experience. Image optimization generally plays a larger part in your page loading time than most other variables, including server location.

The optimization process

The smaller the file size, the faster a file loads. But also, the less details is present in the image. File types like JPEG use heavy compression to work an image as small size as possible.

The human eye often doesn’t require as much detail as is present in an image. So the file size can be reduced without us noticing.

There’s a fine line between a good image optimization and low quality pictures, photos or graphics. In the quest for streamlined websites and small file sizes, it takes a little vigililance to make sure quality and design are never sacrificed.

In the examples below, it’s not easy to tell the difference. However one JPEG file is 5 times larger than the other.
