In this video I share with you some simple techniques to optimize your images so your blog loads much much faster.
Let me show you how the loading time for just one image improved from 4.4 seconds to just 0.9 seconds.
Tools referenced within the video:
WP Smush IT: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-smushit/
Just to confirm, you should optimize all new images you use using Irfanview before adding to pages and posts.
And you should install WP Smush IT. After installing this plugin, go to your media library (left hand side of your WordPress Dashboard and ‘smush’ each existing image. This is an one-off job.
All new images you use will be automatically ‘smushed’.
You will be amazed with the difference in your blog’s loading time.
