    Just a few tips here:

    • Run all the images through TinyPNG. It's amazing how much that can losslessly compress them
    • Anything that's a photo, save it as a JPEG instead of a PNG. JPEG compresses photos better
    • Large gifs are heavy. Put them up as a video, will save tonnes of MB
    • Look in to using the picture element and srcset. Serving up an @3x image for an @1x display is excessive

      Thanks to both of you for the optimization observations + tips ... I really appreciate it! Going to make some updates over the weekend.
