Join Sue Jenkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Use image optimization tools, part of Designing Websites from Photoshop to Dreamweaver.
- [Instructor] We all know from personal experience…that a fast loading webpage is more appealing…than a slow loading one regardless of what it looks like.…Page load times are actually determined by the cumulative…file sizes of the webpage plus all the images, scripts,…hosted fonts, and style sheets it needs to fully display…in a browser.…To give you an example, a page with assets totaling…3.2 megabytes might take 3.03 seconds to load.…Believe it or not, most web users today will expect a page…to load in two seconds or less and if it doesn't load…by three seconds they leave.…
From a sale standpoint, faster loading pages…are more profitable.…As a matter of fact, when your webpages load faster,…there's a greater likelihood to increase page views,…turn visitors into customers, and increase brand loyalty.…On the other hand, every one-second delay…can result in conversion losses, so it's super important…to ensure that your image file sizes are as small…as they can possibly be.…Now Photoshop does a great job with optimizing images…
