Optimizing Files

Optimizing graphic and content files for B.C. government web pages. 

Graphic Files

Graphics with large file sizes reduce performance and make pages slow loading. Larger graphics files also take up more disk space, which slows performance and increases costs. 

Before inserting graphics into CMS Lite pages, make sure that:

  • The correct graphic file type has been used for the type of image being displayed
  • Files have been saved for web, and not saved for printing, in a graphics program
  • Graphic have correct dimensions for their placement
  • The file size for each graphic is under 250KB

Content Files

Unless there is a legal, legislative, graphic design or print requirement, textual content should only be published in CMS Lite pages and not uploaded as files.
