Thank you for reaching out, and I’m sorry to hear that you’re experiencing performance issues with the carousel on your website.
The “Properly size images” issue reported by Lighthouse typically means that the images in your carousel are being loaded at a larger size than they are displayed on your webpage. This can lead to slower page loading times and negatively impact performance.
To address this issue, you can follow these steps:
- Resize Images: Make sure that the images you are using in your carousel are resized to the exact dimensions at which they are displayed on your webpage. For example, if your carousel displays images at 300×200 pixels, ensure that the image files are exactly that size.
- Image Optimization: Optimize your images for the web to reduce file size without sacrificing quality. You can use image compression tools or plugins to achieve this.
- Lazy Loading: Implement lazy loading for your carousel images so they are only loaded when they come into the viewport rather than all at once. This can significantly improve initial page load times.
If you have any specific questions or need further assistance implementing these changes, please ask. We’re here to help!
