I have a friend that wants me to help them with their WordPress website that has about 150 images for their gallery. Their site is quite slow even after I optimized the images using the ImageOptim app. They are using SiteGround as their web host provider, but they are only using the StartUp package because it is the most affordable. I know that the site is slow to load because of the images, but not sure what the best approach is to try and speed it up without paying for a more expensive hosting package.
I am thinking that perhaps the best way to go about doing this would be to have them just put their images on Google Images and use that as their gallery instead, or maybe an Instagram feed like Smash Balloon.
What would you all suggest?
