If you want to resize your images, so they can be loaded faster in your web site, check "Resize Images" (1) and adjust the settings below. The most important settings are images Width and Height (in pixels) and the Resize method (2). The recommended resize method is Lanczos3. There are other resize methods, which are faster but produce resized images with lower quality. All resized images will be saved in JPEG format. The recommended JPEG quality setting is 85%.
