Site URL: https://www.mliuheart.com Hi Guys! We are having trouble with out new website load speed. The homepage and homepage photo take a while to load and so does the product photos and shop photos - Yes good and bad quality internet to play a factor but nonetheless i would like to speed this up as much as i can without losing quality. I've checked online website speed checks but I don't really know what I have to implement to make this change, i've compressed the photos and done all of that so any help or code will really be great! Thanks!!

Does anyone know the optimal image size to upload so that it is sharp at full screen, but doesn’t unduly slow the loading of your site? Also, does it even matter? Are images you upload held someplace on “static.squarespace.com…” area? That way it can be re-sized for large screen, tablet, smartphone, etc. I ask because I find my site can load slow sometimes and I noticed that the image sizes I uploaded were fairly big, 1000 × 1000px. Just trying to understand it better before I spend a bunch of time re-sizing images to potentially speed up my site. Thanks in advance for any insights.Ken
