How to optimize the size of your web photos

3 Ago 2020

 

The size you choose for the photos that you upload to your website will be a very important factor that will help you improve your positioning in search engines (Google) and so that your visitors have a better user experience on your photography, video or creative website (increased conversion).

In a photo page, the web speed will be a parameter to take into account that will depend, among many other things, on the weight of the web page. That is to say, the size of the images you upload to your photography website.

The important thing is to reach a balance when optimizing the photographs so that a good quality of the images shown on the web is maintained. That’s why today we want to explain you how to optimize the size of the images on your photography website according to their usefulness on your website.

 

 

«No photographer wants his images to be seen in poor quality on his website. Find out how to get to the optimal photo size for your photography page.»

 

Right now you’re asking yourself: so, what size or resolution should I upload the images to my website?

In a traditional website, made directly with HTML code or with some CMS (content management system) that does not have implemented an optimization of the images themselves, that question would be key and we could create several articles on this topic.

In Arcadina, we have an integrated system that allows all the images that are uploaded to the website to be optimized for their correct viewing with the minimum size possible and always maintaining the quality that a professional photography website requires.

Vice

When I started to earn my living with my first photographic assignments, more than 25 years ago, I had two clear «vices», music and photographic catalogues. At that time I had not yet set up my first studio and therefore was not yet aware of the meaning of «living to pay». My only investments were records and books, and I wasn’t really planning to do much more either. I was happy with so little or… so much, depending on how you look at it. In fact, when I recall in my mind some passages from my previous youth, I can still clearly relive that almost orgasmic feeling of tearing off the plastic wrapping and discovering the interior design of a CD by Mike Oldfield or Wim Mertens, or the photographs in a catalogue by Duane Michals, Jan Saudek or Helmut Newton. Usually this scene used to take place on a train, back home, after liquidating much of my income in music shops and bookstores in the capital, and I think my ecstasy was more than evident because when I looked around it was not uncommon to come across someone watching me as if I was the same Gollum engrossed in his «treasure».
