I’m migrating a site with several gigabytes of photos and growing. Admittedly, this is not enormous, but part of my doesn’t think storing images in GitHub and including them in every build is the best?
I’d love to hear advice on image handling/storage in general.
- Where do others with large blogs store all their images?
- If in the repo, where in your directory structure? In the content folder? In the assets folder? In the static folder?
- What image optimization steps do others take? External CDN service? Optimization in the build step? If in the build step, how do you avoid optimizing images which have already been optimized in successive builds?
