Delayed image loading for faster page loads.

Recommended Posts

What’s up everyone,

I was wondering if anyone in the community would know how to implement a “lazy load” or “Ajax load” so that images load when they’re appeared instead of right when the page loads.

I think https://grovemade.com looks super cool, I think they’re using JavaScript to load a super small version of their images then adding a CSS blur so the perceived load time is a lot faster.

Can this be done with a Squarespace template?

I came here to ask about the same thing. I'm more interested in implementing this sort of thing for faster loading times as I have a lot of GIFs on a site I'm working on. 

I've come across this plug-in but it's more than I'd want to spend without knowing for sure it would speed things up.

Did you end up finding a solution?

I purchased this plugin to help a friend. 

He has 40-50 galleries with hundreds of images on a page, the site loads very slowly. With the plugin, the speed has improved significantly, but still a bit slow.
