CHECK YOUR FILE SIZES

In Series 4 Episode 8, touched upon the objective of sizing images and files is to have the crispest, most beautiful look with the small possible file size. Go back to Series 4 Episode 8 for a refresh about sizing images and how MOBLE's compression engine does the hard work for you.

Before going live and on a periodic ongoing basis it is important to perform a File Size Health Check:

  • Go to the 'Files' area
  • Notice the 'Sort File' drop down towards the top right of the page
  • Select 'File Size Largest'
  • Select 'Image' and click search
  • Now your images will be listed by File Size from largest to smallest.
  • If you were to optimise your images you could start from the top and work down.
  • Quick improvements would be to replace any PNGs with JPGs.
    • All photographs should be JPG's.
    • You should consider adding a background to any PNG graphics to make them a JPG. E.g. If your page background is white, use add a white background and save as a JPG to reduce the file size.
