What Is Lazy Loading?
Optimizing images and decreasing their load time is one of the quickest and easiest tips for website performance optimization.
Lazy loading images mean images are loaded asynchronously on the website. This means that the images are loaded when the above fold content is fully loaded, or conditionally only when they appear in the browser’s viewport. It highly affects the page load speed. Lazy loading images make sure that rest of the content on the page is loaded soon and then the image is loaded only when the user arrives at that position.
You might have come across many websites or webpages that have lazy loading images on them. They work as follows:
- You arrive on a page and scroll down as start reading to surfing through the page.
- At some point, you will come across a placeholder image.
- This placeholder image is suddenly replaced by the final image when it appears in the viewport.
