Is there an ideal image size to balance image quality and fast loading speed?

Asked a year ago

Is there an ideal number of pixels when downscaling and compressing images to maintain a balance between image quality and fast store website loading speed? My site is loading too slowly and I don't know what to do.

The best size for the squared product images is 2048 x 2048 pixels. You should also ensure the size is between 2 to 3 megabytes for a faster loading speed. The file format also impacts the size. For instance, the PNG format will be larger than the jpg format.
