Speed / delivery of your images and galleries on your website
The two buddies that work hand in hand and make you smile ...
Nothing is more annoying than slow loading websites when it comes to showcase images and galleries. Slow loading images are also penalised by search engines and if these images do not have an appropriate title and alt tag, you can be pretty sure that the search engines will put your content right at the end of their queue.
is an extension that will optimise your images on your website up to 80% which results in a blazing fast loading of your images.
Simply install their extension / plugin, set it up so that any image that is on the website is optimised and tell it to optimise any image you will be uploading from now on.
Try this extension for free and if you are happy with your results they have really modest prices for their plans.
is the perfect buddy to Image Resize! Droppics is one of the most powerful and intuitive Joomla image manager and gallery extension. Not only can it serve scaled images on the fly (images that are already scaled down to speed up your website loading times) it also addresses all these ever so important SEO: file name, image alt and title.
Does it what you would expect from a modern image manager such as watermarks, captions and resizing? Hell yes, of course it does.
