Compressing Images on Wordpress

Hey there! I need some advice on compressing images? I am working with a new client and we are in the process of building her blog up from scratch. What are the regulations on image sizing, compressing, etc? We want to ensure that her site speed does not slow down due to media weight. TIA!

@girlappetit sorry this is so delayed! Are you looking for image sizing recommendations for WP? Within blog posts images should be 1200px wide. Is that what you’re looking for?

NO worries!!! mmmm maybe that’s what I am looking for lol. Basically, I want to make sure that the images that we are uploading do not weight the site down or slow it down in any way… does that make sense?

Last year I wrote up a pretty detailed article on the topic as this comes up a lot.

Check it out at the link below, if anything is not covered or not clear let me know and I’ll look into updating it.
