Site speed is an important ranking factor for SEO:

Although ☔️ does not affect your site speed, image sizing does.
A rule of thumb is to upload images no bigger than the size of the screen they will be viewed on. You will most likely display beautifully with an image weighing 100KB max that will still allow for a fairly fast download speed which will help your SEO.

What’s up guys Seb here in Venice, do you know that rain affects sitespeed because it slows down servers? Definitely not true, but what does affect AEs image with the site speed? And that affects SEO. It’s actually a big ranking factor on how fast your website is and images really affect that. And so a good rule of thumb is definitely do not upload full higher resolution images, thinking that’s the best practice because the truth is screens are only so big, so they won’t be displayed at full resolution. If you have a gigantic image, I’m a good rule of thumb. You’re probably at 80 to 100 kilobytes max, or a full size for a full screen. And if it’s just part of your website, you’re probably looking at 20 to 30 kilobytes max as well. Um, that shouldn’t, uh, increase your site speed, which should help your SEO. That’s a print a day. Pace stay dry.
