Support » Plugin: WP Instagram Widget » Serving Scaled Images?

  • Hi,

    I’ve been running page speed tests on my site, and this message continues to appear and bring my score down:

    The following images are resized in HTML or CSS. Serving scaled images could provide 81% reduction in size.

    Here is an example of one of the images:
    https://scontent-iad3-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/e9b19bb0b559fa447ac74f7d11117bc7/5D1C77DA/t51.2885-15/sh0.08/e35/s640x640/52769902_2346852645551760_6752069077945723502_n.jpg?_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.cdninstagram.com is resized in HTML or CSS from 640x640 to 273x273. Serving a scaled image could save 81.4KiB (81% reduction).

    Is there a way to scale these images or somehow optimize them better so I can improve my site?

    Thanks for the help.

  • I forgot to mention that I’m using the WP Instagram Widget plugin with my StudioPress theme. StudioPress has a widget that works with WP Instagram, which enables me to specify the number of photos and photo size (thumbnail, small, large or original). I don’t know if this makes a difference or not.

    Thanks.

    Specifying an image size will help. Pick small or thumbnail and re-test.
