    Hi there,
    The user who I built this site for has mentioned that the site is slow to load. Are you able to check it for me. I do notice that the images on the home slider ‘jump’ a bit when they load.
    Thank you,

    Hi @toddles_

    I did a test and I see that your site is actually bloated at 23.8MB
    https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/bgoe3k/http://vividimages.com.au/

    Sites with such sizes really take time to load, no matter what theme or hosting server you are in. If you scroll down and look at “Content size by content type” you will see that 23.5MB of the total page size is from images.

    In order for your site to load faster, you must optimize/minimize the images you are using. Adding caching/CDN will also help your site.

    Thanks!

    I have now reduced the size on the images in the home slider to under 200kb, however, they still have a weird jumping effect when each loads. Could you please take a look and see if there is a way to resolve this? Thanks so much 🙂

    Great work on reducing the image size as I see that the page size is now down to 1.1MB from 23MB.

    Can you please send us a screencast of that “jumping” behavior that you mentioned? I do not particularly see any issue on the site’s loading behavior as of the moment.

    Regards,

    Okay, since the decrease in size, it seems to have resolved itself. I didn’t clear the browser’s cache, so maybe it was still loading the old images for a bit.

    Thanks.

    Glad to know this is now resolved, @toddles_

    Regards,
