Support » Everything else WordPress » Importance "Save For Web" in Photoshop?

  • Resolved leannecole



    My wordpresss site contains a few hundred images at the moment and in Photoshop I normally saved them out as jpegs.

    Only today I was recommended to use the Save For Web feature in Photoshop (quality moved to around 50-70%)

    If I resaved and reuploaded all my images, how much of a difference it make overall? Will it load the site load faster?

    It will make a HUGE difference in site loading time for users without the images cached in the browser and also save on bandwidth usage.

    Instead of going back and resaving all your images you can use a online image compression tool or a plugin like wp smush it that will go through your media library and compress all your images.
