Image Size:

One of the largest factors that play into the speed of your website are the size of the sites images. Building your website with images that have been optimized for a web presence is vital to keeping your photos looking good while maintaining a small file size. Using popular software like photoshop you can easily manipulate the image files to save in a smaller image size.

Go through your website and double check the file size of your images. There is a good chance that the larger images are affecting user experience resulting in a website performing below optimal. We can review your website and let you know if there are images that are affecting your websites performance.
