Key highlights from visual
Quality of your images reflects the quality of your blog, so when choosing images make sure you look for ones that are high definition. HQ images are also important for social media exposure, for example when readers share your post on sites like Facebook, Pinterest, or GooglePlus, they are given the option to include an image, if the image is great then it is more likely to be shared.
The size of images in your blog can affect the load speed of your page and how your readers view you post. So make sure your images are between 72 dpi to 96 dpi, anything higher will take longer to load. To cut down on page load time, reduce your image size without affecting quality by compressing your image. Bonus Tip: use tools like SmushIt. JPEGOptimizer, ImageOptimizer and TinyPNG.
