You may reduce the images size to fit to your
content or design. You also may use them as decorative item by repeating
the same image over and over again especially on your web page. This will not effect the download
time since you are using the same image which is already loaded in the cache
Please note that you may reduce image size
but never increase the image size (unless you know what you are doing)
since the image will show grainy pixels.
It's always a good idea to sharpen the image
after reducing the size since the image sharpness will be reduced during
the image reduction process.
Try it by downloading an image from our free
stock photos and play with it on a sample web page.
