A simple way to reduce the size of your WordPress

 image sizes

There are many possible elements that can increase the size, weight and load of a web and WordPress ] does not escape from this danger. In fact, there are default behaviors of our beloved CMS that contribute to overload the size of your website .

One of these default WordPress behaviors that contribute to occupy extra space in your installation is ] the management that makes the images you upload . Let me explain …

Every time you upload an image to illustrate an entry, WordPress automatically creates other sizes smaller than the one you have uploaded. The idea is good, do not believe, because it is based on the fact that you do not need to use in your publication the full size of the images you upload resized by HTML (you know, it is pulling or shrinking the image ) but it is better to use a version that better fits the width of your WordPress theme and in the process you reduce the loading time of your cover (especially).

To give an example; imagine that you have a great holiday photo of about 4,000 pixels that weighs 8 Mb. If you upload it to an entry and publish it as is, even if you reduce the size from the object editor, in reality you will be showing fewer pixels width and height but the image will weigh the same when it is displayed on your website, I remind you, nothing less than 8 Mb .

Now add how long it will take to load the cover of your website if you do the same at each entrance of the ¿10? that you show in it. That's it.

That's why WordPress automatically creates small copies of your images, so you use a size more appropriate to the width of your theme and, consequently, also of less weight in " ] megas ".

The idea is good on that side, but it turns out that, at the same time, too is taking up disk space from your highly-appreciated – and usually expensive – web hosting plan , then you will find 3 or 4 more images, which you do not always use.

And, say, if you never use the average size would not it be better to tell WordPress not to create that copy? or the big size, or whatever you want. I do not recommend removing the miniature size, because if you use the galleries is the one you will use.

Getting it is very simple just go on your WordPress Desktop to the side menu " Settings -> Media "and simply set to" zero "the size or sizes you do not want WordPress to automatically create.

In this example of the capture I have removed all sizes except the thumbnails:

Maybe you'll find it too radical, but if you think about it why are you going to upload the 8 Mb photo? Would not it be better to reduce the pixels before uploading it?

Normally, except in places dedicated to photography, it is never necessary to upload images of more size than the one that will normally show your WordPress theme so will not it be better not to unnecessarily occupy the expensive hosting space?.

You will know by now that I am a fan of the WordPress themes of Elegant Themes . Not only because for $ 39 a year you have at your disposal a huge amount of precious themes, plus all the updates and new topics of each year (at least 5 new ones a year), but because Nick Roach is a great designer with a special taste in the details something that I greatly appreciate.

But it is that with the subject new that has released yesterday, Gleam has broken the molds. It is a WordPress theme that is not valid for all kinds of uses, in fact it is specialized for places where the image is the most important that is, fashion, photography, decoration, those things. And it is so much the taste for details, it is so beautiful that although I have never spoken of any subject in particular of Elegant Themes this time I could not let it go.

Has all the virtues of Nick's themes: fully configurable panel, shortcodes for almost everything, automatic thumbnails, compatible with all WordPress 3.x novelties, page templates, various color schemes, etc., etc. But it is that a simple glance and falls in love .

The transparent blocks the smooth transitions when turning the page, the absolutely "elegant" menus "the edges of each perfect box . Come on, an absolute beauty waiting for your products to sell or promote them in the best possible way. I highly recommend it, like many others that have Elegant Themes and that I usually use, but not here specifically.

Well, enough talk, it is best to enjoy it in the demo and read its characteristics .

If you dare to register to enjoy all those beauties you can do it in the registration page (they also have an affiliate system), to you it's the same and it gives me something for a little whim.
