Changing image size using code (not only for mobile)

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.cuentamelobooks.com/

Hi smarter people than me,

I'm having a frustrating time uploading images to my site. If you have a look, there are small illustrations scattered in the home page and other pages. These were done in Adobe Illustrator. If I save then as 2500 px wide pngs (Squarespace's recommendation), they are way to big and reducing their size using space blocks either makes them too small or still too big. I have used photoshop for reducing their size (what you see now on the site), but they look blurry. So I'm thinking maybe the way to go is code? I've seen other threads with code for reducing image size in mobile, but couldn't find anything for reducing the size in all formats. Thank you in advance for your help. 

Also if there's a better way of doing this that's not code, I will happily hear suggestions. Thanks!
