Next to videos, images are the heaviest, most requested assets on the web. Some of the biggest size savings and performance improvements can come through a better image optimization strategy. The fewer bytes a browser has to fetch, the less competition there is for a user’s bandwidth, and the quicker that critical image can be displayed, along with page’s content.

With the new Smashing book, Addy Osmani provides a practical modern guide to delivering high-quality images on the web — from formats and compression to delivery and maintenance.

The book focuses on what matters: modern approaches to image compression and image delivery, practical tools and techniques to automate optimization, responsive images, current and emerging image formats, how browsers load, decode and render images, CDNs, lazy-loading, adaptive media loading and how to optimize for Core Web Vitals. Everything in one, single, 528-pages book.

“An incredibly comprehensive overview of image optimization. This book will teach you everything you need to know about delivering effective and performant images on the web.”
~ Katie Hempenius, Google
