    Hi,
    I noticed that opening the portfolio page in other browsers and devices, the loading is very slow. Even the pictures on my home page loading slow. How can I fix this?

    Thanks,
    Piero

    Hi @pieromng

    I tested your site (homepage and portfolio page) and here are the results: https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/bYUJkK/http://pieromng.com/ and https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/mKnUB/http://pieromng.com/?page_id=5249

    If you check, your homepage size is pretty huge at 14.34MB and portfolio page at 183.12MB, this is what is dragging the site’s load time. The best option to speed up your site is to minimize and optimize the images that you are using on your site.

    Ok. Thank you.
    I’ll try to change the heavy images.

    HI @pieromng

    We did a test again on your site and here’s the result: https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/ch4B53/http://pieromng.com/?page_id=5249

    As you can see on the result, it shows that your portfolio page size is at 140.02 MB which is pretty large. Please try to minimize and optimize the images again on your Portfolio page to speed up the site.

    Hi,
    Sorry if I open this problem again.
    I decreased the size of all images, but my portfolio page continues to be slow. Also, I can’t open it on my tablet.
    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Piero

    Hi @pieromng

    I ran a test on your site and here’s the result: https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/cMetRW/http://pieromng.com/?page_id=5249

    As you can see on the result, your site’s portfolio page is still quite huge. Each of the images are still 1MB in size. Please optimize the images.

    Hi,
    My portfolio page is still slow to load, although I deleted some pictures and I have installed a plugin to compress images.
    There is another way to fix this or should I decrease the number of images?

    Thanks,
    Piero

    Hi Piero,

    I did a test and https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/eg3Cyt/http://pieromng.com/?page_id=5249 shows that your page’s size is still pretty large at 14MB

    While the images are around 100kB – 200kB each, there’s too many of them that’s why the site’s page size is at such level.

    You can either reduce the images or compress/optimize the images further because you are actually using large images on the site.

    For example is this image: http://i0.wp.com/pieromng.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/color-rgb-2-e1475104812397.jpg

    This image is 700px wide and 1120px tall. You practically do not need an image this large because the image when opened in a lightbox does from the portfolio page only needs to occupy a small space

    Thanks!
