I am not able to optimize the header image to improve loading time. I am concerned about the image-bloating that takes place when I “select and crop” the image.
I followed instructions and prepared images of the exact size recommended – 1920×1280 pixels.
I uploaded the image to media library.
Went to Customize-Header and selected image; size was 179k.
After selecting and cropping image, I looked at file sizes in File Manager. The “cropped-imagename-crop1…” version of the image is now about 3x larger than the original correctly sized image. The “cropped” image is 428k.
Is there any way to use the original correctly-sized optimized photo in the header?
