What does image resolution mean for your website?

To keep your images displayed attractively on your page while keeping load time to a minimum, you'll want to understand the concept of "image resolution."
The photo images on your site are made up of lots of pixels.  These are small squares that affect your image resolution.  The more pixels in your image, the more detail you see – and the higher the resolution.  The downside is that the more pixels in a photo, the bigger the file size – and the slower the image loads on your web page.
On the other hand, with a lower resolution image, fewer pixels means less detail and color.  As it gets really low, you can even see the pixel squares or a "rough-edges" sort of look.  So the idea is to balance the quantity of pixels with the quality of the photo.  Good options for that balance include keeping the image resolution to a standard 72 pixels per inch (ppi) and if you can control image compression - finding a happy medium between the best image quality and the lowest possible file size.
Minimizing the number of images on your web pages can also decrease the amount of time your visitor waits for the page to load. If you still want to show lots of images or high quality images without increasing the load-time of your web page, try thumbnail-sized images that link to a larger version.  Site visitors can have the option to see it in more detail by clicking on the thumbnail.
