One of the thing’s that should always be on your mind is the size of images, and pictures on a page. Having large images on a page will slow the loading time of that page this could even effect the ranking of the page on search engines, and you could even loose impatient visitors that don’t wait for the page to load.

Be careful how large your images are on a page, use a online image editor or a free image resizer to resize images rather than using the image size tags in the code, this will only make the image smaller, the image file size will remain the same size.

Image resizing will reduce not only the image size but also the image file size for faster loading images. If you have a large image that you want resized it may take a little longer, be patient and wait for the image tool to make the image smaller, it will be worth it.

How To Resize Images

If you want to know how to resize images you can use the image resizer and follow the instructions below:

  1. Browse your computer and select your image/photo to resize
  2. Select the new size for your picture – use a preset or choose a custom size
  3. Optionally, add an effect to your image
  4. Select output image/picture quality Lower quality means a smaller file
  5. Click “Resize” and wait for the processed images to be displayed
  6. Once done save to your computer

Make Your Images Smaller For A Faster Loading Site

Even if you have no graphics skills or knowledge you will be able to make your images smaller, the online image editor will help with your photo editing and improve your sites loading time, anyone can resize images. Image’s that you want on your site should not be hosted on a different domain always try to host images on your own site.

If for some reason the site that you use to host your images closes down your images will not appear on your site, also they have to be loaded from a different source, this will increase the page load time.

Use Small Images That Link To Full Size Images

Another way you help make your site fast is to use a thumbnail image and link the thumbnail to the full size image this way the smaller image will load fast and if the visitor wants to see better details on the image all they have to do is click the thumbnail and the full image will load allowing them to see the image full size. You can use the image resizer to resize the thumbnail using the custom size setting.

Another image tool that’s great is the image optimizer you can reduce the image file size even more without effecting the image quality by removing unnecessary bytes and white space from image files.
