I was super excited to be speaking at WordCamp Miami 2018. It was held on March 16-18th, at the Florida International University in Miami. WordCamp is an annual conference that focuses on everything WordPress, organized by the community and put on by WordPress users. Everyone from casual users who need help with their website to core developers participate, share ideas and get to know each other.
In this presentation, we discussed popular image formats, used on the Web today, and also steps to follow before uploading them to a website. We set up a process to prepare images for the web and went over tools to measure loading time. We also looked at some examples of before and after image optimization.
Every year the weight of an average site keeps increasing, mainly because of image sizes. Optimizing images is very important when it comes to your website speed.
