What should the max file size be for a site background image?
The site I'm developing at the moment has a background image that is 250k after being optimized. It's being served from a CDN but obviously this is way too big, but before I go to the designer and ask her to remake the image, what is a file size I should recommend the image not be greater than?
P.S. this is video site and the main demo are younger people connecting via broadband.
you can reduce image size by using photoshop... just save that image as "Save for Web or devices..."
