Hi Carmen!

Very nice work!

Here is a dropbox to your hero image.

My wifi connection is 💩. So I noticed that your hero loaded rather slowly.

If you have photoshop, if you open imgs up and press cmd + alt+ shift+s --it will open in an interface to prompt you to decide the size and dimentions and (most important for performance...) "weight" of the image.

This little feature just may become your best friend if you use images when you develop.

The image I posted above is lighter and of lower quality, but is significantly quicker to load.

I wish I had a good link for more info on this....but... check around. It's actually a bit of fun and an interesting challenge to get all images on your site to about 100 k (?) --Perhaps someone who knows about perf, could weigh in here 😂🤣.


It's a very nice site.

PS Your Richard III cover is amazing on Behance 👍🏼

Thank you! I've had problems with that image and the one I used in a previous iteration. To be honest, I thought it was my WiFi, so I hoped it wouldn't affect anyone else's use of the site.
