Many offer how to install this lazy load, but some bloggers don't understand how to install it and apply it in posts and on other images. 

Examples of messages to defer images usually appear when testing page speed on the Lighthouse Report Viewer or other page speed tests such as examples below this:-

2. Next, add this CSS code before  ]]></b:skin> or before </style> tag in your blogger theme.


.lazyload,
.lazyloading {
    opacity: 0;
}
.lazyloaded {
    opacity: 1;
    transition: opacity 300ms;
}

How to Install Lazyload to Defer Off Screen Images

Here, I will share two ways to install lazysizes, namely first for the homepage or front page and also for blog posts.

Lazyload for Homepage

For the homepage it is usually similar to the code below in your themes. usually it code is different in other themes.


<b:if cond='data:post.thumbnail'>
                <div class='item-thumbnail'>
                  <a expr:href='data:post.href' target='_blank'>
                    <img expr:alt='data:post.title' expr:height='data:thumbnailSize' expr:src='data:post.thumbnail' expr:title='data:post.title' expr:width='data:thumbnailSize'/>
                  </a>
                </div>
              </b:if>

For installation is to change expr:src to  expr:data-src and add  src='data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==' after expr:title='data:post.title' Then the result is as in the example below:-


<b:if cond='data:post.thumbnail'>
                <div class='item-thumbnail'>
                  <a expr:href='data:post.href' target='_blank'>
                    <img expr:alt='data:post.title' expr:height='data:thumbnailSize' expr:data-src='data:post.thumbnail' expr:title='data:post.title' src='data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==' expr:width='data:thumbnailSize'/>
                  </a>
                </div>
              </b:if>

Lazyload For Blog Post Images

Now we go into practice on a blog post, on how to install lazy size lazy load scripts on images.

Notice the example below


<img alt="How To Add Lazy Load Google Analytics in Blogger" border="0" data-original-height="720" data-original-width="1280" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ZZEMyCU7FXw/YSH4cSBKpTI/AAAAAAAAAqE/ZgmJhmfUUscFoUFSjtDWlfqCj9BYlTO-ACLcBGAsYHQ/s16000/How%2BTo%2BAdd%2BLazy%2BLoad%2BGoogle%2BAnalytics%2Bin%2BBlogger.png" title="How To Add Lazy Load Google Analytics in Blogger"/>

To apply lazyload to the code above:-

  1. Change src to data-src .
  2. border="0" replace with class="lazyload"
  3. Add  src='data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw=='before title

If you're still confused, see how to do it below:-


<img alt="How To Add Lazy Load Google Analytics in Blogger" class="lazyload" data-original-height="720" data-original-width="1280" data-src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ZZEMyCU7FXw/YSH4cSBKpTI/AAAAAAAAAqE/ZgmJhmfUUscFoUFSjtDWlfqCj9BYlTO-ACLcBGAsYHQ/s16000/How%2BTo%2BAdd%2BLazy%2BLoad%2BGoogle%2BAnalytics%2Bin%2BBlogger.png" src='data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==' title="How To Add Lazy Load Google Analytics in Blogger"/>

Here's an example of the result after deferring the image with lazyload.
