The concept of modular blocks making up WordPress posts and pages arrived alongside Gutenberg, but really, WordPress itself is modular in structure. Take your WordPress Media Library, for example. You can upload images and use them in posts or pages, regardless of the editor that you are using. In this article, we focus specifically on Elementor, and how you can optimize images using ImageRecycle.
If you want to have a really professional WordPress site to grow up your business or you have a WordPress site and you want to take the next step, you should know that one of the most important parts of your site is the media library and you will have to have it organized.
Optimization? Check. Lazy loading? Check again. Still, your Joomla! website feels clunky and it takes too long to load on mobile devices and slow connections. Despair not—this is when the HTML structure comes in handy; more precisely, the image source sets, or the srcset attribute.
Take any image on your WordPress or Joomla blog. If you rate quality, odds are that the image is large enough that it has to be scaled down to fit on your readers’ desktop devices, let alone on mobile devices. Quality is all well and good, but cases such as this one come at a hefty price.
One of the things we take in mind when we choose a good plugin to manage media in our Wordpress site is how fast it loads and the impact it causes in our servers but with the magic ImageRecycle’s magic, you can use all media manager in your site without worrying about the space that images will occupy on your server.
If you are on a shoestring budget or if you are looking for a one-off stock image to use, the websites to choose from are ever-growing. From Pixabay and Pixels to Unsplash, the alternatives won’t leave you hanging.
One consideration with stock images is their size: high quality images are usually big in size as well. If user experience is a priority—as it should—using these images is not just about finding them, but also about delivering them as fast as possible. ImageRecycle’s compression is one solution to help you compress images from Pixabay, Pexels, Unsplash and other stock image websites for your WordPress blog.
Image Recycle is the best option when we talk about image compression, we can use it in the default media library perfectly, that is really helpful but this awesome tool is also compatible with all media library so you are not just limited to that old default media library.
