Your page speed has a significant impact on sales.

Lazy Image will speed up your pages, increasing sales.

Lazy Image Demo — On mobile devices, the demo typically loads 50% less data thanks to all the lazy images.


LazyImage provides everything you need to get your products in front of potential customers as fast as possible. Images are loaded only when they should be visible, and use a non-intrusive SVG placeholder to keep the layout consistent during loading. Also features:

  • Custom installation for converting images without you having to touch any code

  • Support for background images

  • Ability to disable lazy-loading for select images


March, 22 2017

In response to some bad customer experiences, I have decided that the grand experiment with auto-conversion is done, and the verdict is: Not worth it. The parsing of image tags almost always worked, but even a 1% failure rate can cause too much distress for users. Additionally, when I get on the phone with someone to fix this issue and help them install it by hand, it takes very little time and seems to be a much more pleasant experience for everyone.

So from here onwards, I am offering free personal, by-hand installation for every new store to sign-up. Just reach out at brendan@barrcoders to coordinate with me.

Total disaster from a guy who just doesn't get it. We started the day with a respectable pagespeed score of 82/100 we ended the day with a score of 55 after they worked their un-magic.

He told me he had done a good job, and he also told me "Oh really? That doesn’t make much sense.. It typically improves it, or doesn’t affect it at all.
well, let me know what you’d like to do. I usually suggest going by how the site looks and feels, as that is what your visitors will care about, rather than page speed."

For a developer to spout this bile and not recognise that pagespeed is one of the main ranking factors for mobile in 2018 is amazing.

His nonsense attempt at making LL work in Shopify was a total disaster and his crazy statements thereafter should make u want to avoid this.

PS he never took a backup before he started so we couldn't roll back his changes.

They have cost us money.


Simple and perfect solution. We have large collections of products that we want users to be able to long scroll down. Our page load times were S-L-O-W as a result. I installed this app and messaged the developer for the free installation as indicated in the app. Within 30 minutes we were done. The page load times are virtually instantaneous. I cannot stress enough how simple and effective this app is. Couldn't have asked for a better process or result.


i don't know why there are bad reviews this is very nice app


This app should be called Lazy Developer

He offered support, but never gave any.

Waste of time and money


We wanted to try the program, but nobody was upset with us. Nobody cares?


Brendan was a huge help I managed to install most of it by myself, fairly easily, just had one part I didn't understand and within a few hours, Brendan had it all fixed up for me. Then if that wasn't good enough he informed me the app wasn't right for me, as I didn't have an issue with page speed. How's that for honesty! I don't think there are many app creators out there that would be that genuine. I highly suggest trying this app, you've got nothing to lose. I know I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for any new apps by this developer.

Terrible. Its different from the video. All manual with no complete instructions.


This developer deserves a lot of love for his wonderful app. This is not for everyone, so please make sure you do the following: 1- Backup your theme first. 2- Contact the developer to get the correct setup that works best for your theme. 3- Relax, sit and enjoy the great performance, your website will thank you for it.

The developer is a great guy, very helpful and polite. He worked on my theme several times during the past two weeks until we got everything sorted. He even enhanced his app by taking on one of my suggestions in regards to images loading animation. Overall, I am very impressed and I will be supporting this app as long as I am doing business on Shopify.

Give the app a try, but don't forget to backup first. This app could break your theme if you do the setup on your own, so be very careful with that, and contact the developer because he knows best. Good luck!


OMG. This app completely broke our website. Oh NO!! Be Aware.
