So, I was told that I could optimize an image which I should,
I did decrease the file size from 7.01 MB to 5.42 MB, but it is of course too large still.
The image was 299 pixels/inch.
So, I opened up the file in photoshop > changed the pixels/inch to 150 pixels/inch (this of course reduced the width and length of the image) > saved the file > resized the file to the original pixel width 2668 x 2000.
I originally tried this setting the pixels/inch to 72 pixels since that is was I thought the resolution should be for the web. However, too much resolution was lost.
So, am I doing this correctly?? Is there a better way?
You can look at the image on this site. It is the background image
