HOME PAGE - Slideshow best practices (image sizes...)

All of our themes come with beautiful slideshow for the home page.

A lot of people are often concerned about the best format to use for images. Unfortunately, there is no golden rule for that. However, here are some best practices:

  • Make sure to always use JPG images (PNG are much heavier and take longer to load).
  • Make sure to always optimize your JPG images by using a tool such as TinyJPG. Ideally, you should try to make sure your slideshow images are not more than 150 Kb.
  • A good size that provides a good work-around between quality and performance is 1600x600.
  • Do not include too many slides: try to stick with 2 or 3 at maximum. Not only it will make your site faster to load, but it has also been proven that most customers do not see slides beyond the second or third one.
