JPG compression

Case ID #4824   -   Setup / Installation

sorry for asking this as I don't wand to cause any work but I think it is quite important and was not answered fully in the documentation.
I want to optimize the images so loading does not take so long on mobile.

1. When uploading an image to a portfolio it is stated that "Recommended image width is minimum 1600px wide".
If I have retina x2 does this mean I should upload 1600 or 1600*2=3200?
2. I heard that WordPress optimizes image quality and creates several sizes for the different usages (thumbnail…). Is this correct? Does this mean I can Upload high quality 3000×2000 images and WordPress does the rest?
3. There are plugins like or which create smaller files and do this even automatically. Do you think that makes sense?

Thank you very much,
