Image file size

Hi team!

Is there any way to reduce the file size output for displaying the Instagram feed?

My webpage load size is very large, with unnecessarily large images. (See attachment screenshot).

Hi @Jasper_Boer

We are so happy that you’ve decided to join our ranks! Welcome :tada:

At the moment, unfortunately, there is no way to optimize the images and we use them in the exact form Instagram provides them on its end. I am so sorry!

We do understand how important and we’ll try to find a proper solution.

As for now, I’d like to tell you that there is a way to improve page loading speed. You are very welcome to reinstall your widget by using some kind of lazy loading.

To make it work, you need to add a data-elfsight-app-lazy attribute to the widget installation code. Here’s what the installation code will look like:

<script src="" data-use-service-core defer></script> <div class="elfsight-app-WIDGET-ID" data-elfsight-app-lazy></div>

Please replace WIDGET_ID in the code above with the ID of your own widget and install it on your website.

Here is the article explaining this feature in a more detailed way - How to improve PageSpeed score of a page with our widget.

Thanks very much for this Max!

It has increased my GTMetrix “Structure” score from 69 to 74% and the images are no longer displayed in the list of network payloads.

Appreciate your quick solution!

Best, Jasper

Awesome :star_struck:

You are always welcome!
