Serving optimized, responsive images

Recently I’m fairly busy with Udacity’s Mobile Web Specialist nanodegree and diving deeper in photography, but let’s find some time to show the benefits of responsive images via a working and downloadable example. When serving images you want to make sure the image resizes nicely (responsive) and it’s as small as possible without affecting quality (optimized). Not saying I always do it, especially with CMSs it can be overwhelming to save those few bytes, but it’s still important both for your users and for your SEO.

WP site optimization with [SeaBadger]

Performance matters and although site optimization should not be overdone, it’s worth paying attention to. As I’m that kind of visitor who will leave your page for the flashing content and lagging scroll, I like to make sure my sites don’t suffer from that plague. As to kickstart this blog I chose WordPress, in this case we will take a look at WordPress optimization a bit.

To be honest, this page is not the best crime scene for an investigation showcase, as I’m using a very simple template, very few plugins and no fancy animations. Having said that, there is always room for improvement, so let’s take a look at the tools and will make another post with more advanced stuff another time.
