Hi all -
I'm helping a friend with her wordpress site http://www.shreddedsprout.com. For the past 2 years she has been uploading photos that are upwards of 3.8mb, and now the site has nearly slowed to a halt.
I grabbed the entire uploads folder via FTP to help shrink all the images down and replace them. The problem I've run into is that WordPress automatically creates multiple files for each images (example: dog.jpg, dog-150x150.jpg, dog-600x400.jpg, etc.)
My question is: Can I just replace the large files, or do i need to optimize each of the autogenerated extra files as well?
Thanks for the help everyone!
