Understanding my results: slow load times

RE: Understanding my results: slow load times
if you look in the "Performace review" of the test it is showing:
Compress Images: 100/100
58.7 KB total in images, target size = 58.7 KB - potential savings = 0.0 KB

I think this is "miss-leading" because you are using png-files for the slider.
(In using png this test cant show you the better results)
And this is a problem - because here you can do the most - very easy!
The slider-images on the index-page are not optimized.
In the "waterfall" you see the long blue bars from the png-files (images) .

I think they are much to heavy. (Click of each blue bar and you see file size)
One example:
has nearly 1.3 MB (loading time 9119ms!)
If you try this free online compression tool ( )
you come from 1.3 MB to 433 kB (lossy png compression but good!)
But better is using jpeg-Format for the image-slider - you get smaller file sizes (but optical good results)
In Photoshop you get this 1.3 MB Image to 260KB in a good quality saved as jpg.

Next big thing "Time To First Byte" (TTFB) ist too long with 3sec.
May be a problem of the hoster because of a "slow database".
Normally I have about 0.2 sec TTFB with static html-files.
There is are some WP-Plugins which offers static html-files for better performance. Example:

Greets from Germany
(Interesting site you made - hope you get it faster)
