Hello,

I am creating a Shopify store which will contain about 2k+products (mostly jewelry). I have added about 200 products on website already and I am taking all of the photos by myself.

As of now I have uploaded about 500+ photos which are on average 200KB with resolution of 1500*1500px because I don't want the product to be too "zoomable".

My questions are:

  1. What is the most optimal image size (in KB) for a website with a lot of products? Should I compress them all to be under 100KB?
  2. Should only the front images be compressed? 
  3. Is it okay if I use the resolution of 1500*1500px instead of 2048*2048px (recommended size) will that affect SEO and my website in any way? 
  4. What is the best tool for image compression

Thank you in advance!
