When working with images in your WordPress website always remember to re-size them before uploading to your WordPress media folder…rarely will a website ever need and image larger than 1000px wide. The main content area of my website is approximately 600px wide so I always re-size my images to ensure my WordPress website loads fast. Below are a few different options for displaying images or photos in WordPress. The montage images below were created using Wordle.
