Recently, I went to edit a client’s website and needed a photo from a past event. I tried to search for it without luck because the file was named this:
This file was also 4MB which in web speak is REALLY LARGE!
While WordPress can crop an image it just uses up resources and space on the server. Uploading large images (right off your iPhone) can make your site REALLY slow especially for people using a mobile device.
Pro Tip: Optimize an image BEFORE uploading it to the website. Give your image file a useful name so it is easier to find later.
I’m so excited at a new website for a Children’s Center in Kenya. When a friend approached me about setting up a site to inform people of the need of this group I immediately set up a Word Press site. I thought I would have to spend sometime customizing image for the group, but with only an hour of training Wendy created this beautiful site with wonderful pictures of the children and community involved. My work has been minimal. I’m so happy someone with a need has seen the ease and usefulness of WordPress and used it for their advantage! Visit dalakwe.com!
