Retina images, how to start optimizing your site, and the different levels of image optimization with Simon Duduica.

Welcome to episode 188 of The Food Blogger Pro Podcast! This week on the podcast, Bjork interviews Simon Duduica about optimizing images on your website.

We know that optimization is important when it comes to building a website, so today’s interview focuses on optimizing images.

That’s where ShortPixel comes in. They help you optimize your images in a way that doesn’t compromise quality or that “drool-worthiness” we all want to see in our images.

ShortPixel’s Head of Technology, Simon, is here to chat through what optimizing your images means and how you can make sure the images on your site are optimized.
