Delivering images with an image proxy
When building websites, images play a huge role. The median website has 1 MB of images on each page (State of the images on the web). But, when we get an image from a photographer or designer, the images may be several megabytes each. In order to properly display the images on the web, we don’t want to send a huge raw file. It should be resized to fit the screen, and to ensure that webpage loads quickly, the size should be reduced so that the file can be delivered quickly.
