Summary of this Tutorial:

Most beginners don’t know how to save images properly which can have a major impact on website speed.

When saving images you need to consider image file format, and compression. By choosing the right combination you can decrease your image size by 5x.

For most of us the only two image formats that matter are JPEG for a compressed file format with slightly reduced quality for a smaller file size, and PNG for a higher quality uncompressed image.

The next thing is compression which means using a tool to save images optimized for the web.

A few of the image compression tools available to bloggers are Adobe Photoshop, TinyPNG, JPEG Mini, Trimage, and ImageOptim.

Lastly, using a CDN to serve images for your WordPress site anc significantly speed up your site.
