Choosing and Optimizing WordPress Images Like a Pro

A WordPress website without images is like a dog without treats. Sure, it would get by alright without them, but it’d be doing a whole lot better with them.

Here’s the thing though: You can’t just throw any ol’ images onto your WordPress site.

A poorly selected image can have devastating consequences for the brand it’s associated with. The same goes for un-optimized images that slow the website wayyyyy down.
