    Firstly thank you for providing this premium quality theme free of cost..

    Why don't this theme uses post thumbnails with reduced images sizes like 250x250??
    My website loading speed decreases as this theme loads entire full size image in the home page...

    In functions.php on line 80, locate:

    add_image_size( 'thumb-medium', 520, 245, true );

    Change that to:

    add_image_size( 'thumb-medium', 345, 162, true );

    Preferably by moving the whole alx_setup function to a child theme and then making the modification there.

    The reason such large images are used is that even if people use the full-width layout, the images looks sharp. The size above is optimized for 720px width content.

    Once you've made the change, regenerate thumbnails.

    The small thumbnails in AlxTabs is double the size to look sharp on retina/high resolution devices.

    In my opinion, image size is very large if peoples use full width layout... So it is better to show 3 or more post thumbnails and excerpt in a row... instead of 2..

    Good point. Problem there is that the custom loop wraps posts two-by-two in the markup, so easier said than done. But 4 per row is doable with some compromises - will consider if for the future.
