Getting the best file size

It's important that we keep all images file sizes as small as possible, as this is a major factor when looking at overall website speed!

After you have resized your images using the above steps, upload them through ImageOptim a great free tool that drastically reduces file size without compromising quality.

We try to aim for less than 300kb and ideally 200kb.

Where do you find the right image dimensions?

When resizing images for your website, there will be sizes already created in your website admin for where your new images will go - referencing these image sizes will keep the layout consistant.

To find where image sizes are listed, follow the steps below, or feel free to ring the studio and we can step you through it:

  1. Log into the website admin > go to the 'Media' module listed on the left panel.

  2. Click on an image that is displaying on the website where you wish to add new images to.

  3. This opens up the image details, if you look in the top right panel details you will see the image information listed, here you can see the current 'Dimensions'use this for your new images, using the above steps.



The Importance of File Names

Using clear and accurate image file names not only helps keep the website admin media module tidy but it actually helps with SEO!

The best way to name images is by using the website name > followed by the website section it shows on > followed by a description of the image.
