Resolution can be best summed up to mean quality.
An image that is low resolution has fewer pixels per inch.
This means that it will appear blurry or fuzzy.
An image that is high resolution has a lot more pixels per inch which makes it much clearer.
In short, higher resolution images are larger in size.
This can be a disadvantage if you want people to open up your page and view it quickly.
If your site doesn’t open within 3 seconds, people will click away and go to your competitor.
The only way to find a happy medium between low and high resolution images is to have medium ones!
When choosing images you can right click them and choose ‘properties’.
This will give you the size of the image in kb, mb.
Anything over might be too high, so it’s a good idea to check.
When sizing your images, choose about 650 – 850 pixels in height. The vertical will take care of itself.
You can always resize the image in your dashboard if it’s too big.
It’s much more difficult to make a small image bigger.
While you might not have put much thought into the resolution of the images you are using, it is an important factor to consider.
Good quality images say a lot about your business. You don’t want your online reputation clouded with poor quality images or ones that take too long to download.
Keep this in mind when choosing images for your blog or website.
