A good rule of thumb is to try to keep your images on your website to their minimum size and resolution - less than 70kb.

There are four aspects to any image that affect its file size, and there are many tools available to help you optimize your images.

DIMENSIONS

 

RESOLUTION

731 kb

282 kb

87 kb

FILE TYPE

JPEG or JPG:  this is the most flexible file (change resolution, dimensions, color) and the most widely used on the web

PNG:  great for maintaining high resolution but usually creates a larger file size

GIF:  great for icons (won't blur if you greatly reduce its size) and for animations
