    Hi,

    I just uploaded the Agency Theme to my site and I love it. The only issue is the time it takes to load the background image for my site. When I try to access the site from a computer that has never loaded my site it takes up to 50 seconds for the background image to load. So my question is, how can I significantly reduce the time it takes my site to load, but still retain the background image on my site?

    Here is my site address http://www.k12hrsolutions.com

    Thank you for your help.

    One issue is that your image is 4.7Mb which, in my opinion is far too big. By compressing your image you should be able to reduce it to about one tenth of its current size without noticeable loss of quality. If you don’t have software to reduce it there are numerous online facilities to do it. You may get better compression by using ,jpg instead of .png.
    If you can do that you should get a much faster load time.
