Image Optimisation for Website Galleries
We recently helped a fabulous local business called Little Tin Shed who are an award-winning florist for weddings, events, sympathy and everyday joy. Little Tin Shed are based in Billericay and we have been helping them with the SEO for their website. Little Tin Shed recently had a professional photo shoot, to showcase their funeral flowers and wanted to incorporate many of the images onto their website products.
Now, as you can imagine, a professional photography will most likely be using a DSLR camera capable of taking high quality images which are likely to be large is size. These particular photos were all 5760 x 3840 or 3840 x 5760 depending whether the aspect was landscape or portrait. The size in Mbs was approximately 3 to 4 Mbs and whilst this is not overly excessive for images of this size it is still to large to use for a website.
Suzanne of Little Tin Shed sent us the batch of images for us to prepare these ready for her website, there are two processes we put the images through to get the ready for the website. We batch process the images to fit an predetermined area and then we compress the image to make them as small as possible to make them load as fast as possible on a website.
