Now that you have your high quality photos of your past projects, you are ready to upload them to your website. However, they might not be ready for the internet.
Historically, we have desired images with high “bit-depth”. This means that there is a lot of data in the actual image file, kind of like a long vs short movie file. The internet doesn’t like large files. It likes tiny files. The smaller, the better.
Image compression allows us to take extra data out of the image without losing tons of quality. There are lots of image compression sites out there, but this is one that we feel does a good job.
The reason we need these tiny images is for load speed. the faster a webpage can download and load, the more likely people will view it. Many people abandon pages in just 2 seconds! Plus, Google is watching your load speed too, so fast is best.
