Specify image dimensions

    Hello, I’m trying to optimize my site to make it faster. One of the problems my website has is according to gtmetrix is that I need to specify image dimensions. I’m guessing that I’d have to go in and edit some type of code some where. Does anyone know where I can start? Thanks.

    What theme version are you using?

    Specifying the image dimensions will not make much difference. There are other more important optimizations to do in order to speed up your site.

    I’m using version 7.1.4. I’ve done most other major optimizations. However, I have a 0 (grade F) on Specify scaled images under gtmetrix Google page speed. Everything else is B or higher on site grade sheet but I’m still at a paltry 65% overall. I want to know how to do this so I can take my score higher. Do you have any idea how to go about this?

    Did you manage to specify image dimensions?
    I have the same issue. Gtmetrix gives 0 (grade F) on this topic and everything else has already been optimized.
    I am using Responsive Theme version 6.2.

    Thank you!

    Any resolutions on this? I know this thread is old, but I too am trying to optimize the site and am receiving a Gtmetrix failing score on this.

    You are putting too much trust into the GT Metrix test, but if you read the explanation for the image dimension test, you would realise that it is simply flawed:

    Page Speed currently only detects image dimensions that are specified via the image attributes. If you are specifying the dimensions via CSS, then you can safely ignore this recommendation.

    As the theme specifies the image dimensions via CSS, the test simply does not detect it and reports it as problem (while in fact there is no such problem).

    So just stop blindly trying to get everything in that test to 100 and instead focus on providing a good, quality content.
