Reducing image file size is a high priority! This will help keep your site speed up and hosting storage space down. Before adding any images to your website make sure the file size is low.
It is very important to give your images proper file names. Do not use a random selection of letters and numbers. The name MUST NOT include any !@#$%^&*()| and most importantly no ‘.’ periods (except at the end of the file name). Consider using your focus keyword in your file name or something descriptive that google can search.
If you do not own quality images, use these websites to find free or paid quality images. Be sure to reduce the file size before uploading to your website.

To add images to your website, upload your optimized image files to the media library. When you go to insert/add media into an individual post, use these settings:
Write a description for your image in case it does not load. This is also beneficial for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and users with disabilities.
Align: center (unless formatting desired) Link to: none (unless custom link desired) Size: full (unless you know what size you want)
Your theme has been built to use very specific image dimensions (sizes). Follow these guidelines when creating images. Images should be uploaded at the size you want them to appear, to remain crisp and of good resolution.
