Tips, Tricks and Best Practice for Images

Image Dimensions

Full width images are best at 2800px wide and no smaller that 1800px wide.

Images Contained in default width single column will best display at 1200px wide.

Gallery images are best at 900-1200px. Would recommend sizing down to 1200. Images small than the 900 are fine if the client wants them on the site.

Other images should be sized for the spaces they take up on a page viewed in desktop. Example: I have an image that will take up half the column which is typically 1100px wide. I would save the image no smaller than 600px wide.

Image File Sizes

In General Images should be 350kb or less if possible.

Hero Banner and Full Width Images will tend to be larger images. Best practice is to try to keep them 600kb or under, and no more than 1MB. The only time to do this would be at clients request. 1MB images will load pretty slow.
