different weight same picture

Post by spadajoker » Tue May 24, 2022 9:50 am

hi everyone, google pagespeed found several errors about the size of the images on my website. Specifically, I recommend using webp or avif format but I don't think they can be used by default on my site because if I insert them I get an error.

But the main problem I would like to understand is the following:
google signals me a 100kb image and suggests me to reduce it. so I go to the image and I find that looking for is 100 but when I download it to modify it and open it with photoshop it signals me that the image is 900kb.

How is it possible?

Hello spadajoker

You could try with ImageRecycle to optimze your images:
