How to optimize images for the web
A few weeks ago, we wrote about how to optimize your images for web usage.
Today we’re going to discuss how to apply the same technique to images on your website.
How do you know which images are going to be used in the main page, which will be used on the footer and which ones are going into a gallery?
It is important to understand that the first two images on the page are the ones that will be displayed.
In the case of your site, that means the main header, the footers main image, the navigation bar, the content area and the thumbnail.
In order to understand this, let’s take a look at the image sizes.
The image sizes are always the same, regardless of the platform.
The reason is that they are scaled for a certain aspect ratio (or aspect ratio scale).
If your site is using the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio, then the image will be scaled down by 1% to 1:4:3 ratio.
For the smaller screen resolutions, it will be reduced by 5% to 9:10:4 ratio.
If your website is using a more modern pixel ratio, it may also be reduced.
So, the size of your main image will change depending on your platform, and it will depend on how large the content is.
Here is how to determine the images sizes.
First, you will need to find the width of your images, which is typically the size in pixels of the smallest image.
Next, the image is scaled in the image dimensions.
The number is usually referred to as the aspect ratio.
The more the number, the larger the image size.
If the image width is greater than or equal to 4, the width is scaled down to 1.
If it is less than or equals 4, then you are scaling it down.
So if you scaled your images down by 5%, then they will be a 1:2:1 ratio.
That means the images will be 1/8th the size they were on your old website.
If you scaled them down by 10%, then the size is 2/8ths the size it was.
For example, if you wanted to display a 4-megapixel image, then it would look like this: Image size in megapixels Width in pixels Height in pixels 2.2 0.8 1.0 3.8 4.8 6.4 8.4 10.4 12.4 14.4 16.4 20.4 24.4 28.4 32.4 36.4 38.4 40.4 42.4 44.4 48.4 52.4 56.4 60.4 64.4 70.4 80.4 90.4 100.4 105.4 110.4 115.4 120.4 130.4 135.4 140.4 145.4 150.4 155.4 160.4 170.4 180.4 190.4 200.4 205.4 210.4 215.4 220.4 225.4 230.4 240.4 250.4 260.4 270.4 280.4 285.4 290.4 295.4 300.4 305.4 310.4 315.4 330.4 335.4 340.4 350.4 360.4 365.4 370.4 375.4 380.4 390.4 400.4 Text size is usually a good indicator of the size.
In fact, if it is smaller than the width, it is not as good a indicator as a pixel ratio.
Therefore, in this case, it would mean that the image would be 1:5:4 on the smaller screens and 8:10 on the larger screens.
Therefore for the navigation area, you would scale it down by 20%.
For the foot, you’d scale it up by 50%.
In the header, you scale it to 80%.
Finally, for the thumbnail, you need to determine its width, which usually is the size to be displayed on the main image.
If that image is smaller in dimensions than the image that is displayed in the foot area, then your image size is less that the width.
In this case your image width would be less than the number 1:8:16.
If there are multiple images that are smaller than this number, then they should all be scaled to the same size.
So in this example, you could use a scale factor of 10, as this would mean your image would fit on one line (10:10).
This would mean you would display the foot with a 1/4 inch width, but the nav bar would have a 1 inch width.
It would be the same as the foot but the navigation banner would have an inch wide.
So it is a good idea to use a scaling factor that is higher than 100% to ensure the images are displayed correctly.
This is a bit different than using a scaling ratio that is equal to or smaller than 100%.
