SMUSH/ Image optimization

I'm trying to smush the large images that are rotating on the home page. We had to make them 3600x1500 or the seal would look fuzzy. We tried everything. I thought that if I enabled compression and smushed them it would improve things, but it doesn't seem to help. Can you please assist?

    Hello Meshel,

    When you load images that big Smushing wont improve your score in Google page speed because dimensions of the images are way to big. Google not only pay attention to optimizing images but also on how big their dimension they have.
    I tested your site in Google Page speed and result is that re size would decrees size of loaded images of 19MB. 19MB in images is really too much for website.

    Optimization wont be able to cut so much from images - you can try Super Smush images if you haven't tried that yet, but I'm afraid without resizing images you have in slider, that wont be enough .

    kind regards,
    Kasia
