For my company, especially blog posts, we compress images at https://compressjpeg.com/. it is free and as simple as you can get, really. 

The idea is to try to keep images below 100kb. 
of course, server optimization is also important for website speed :)

I also use photo optimization, Andy - you really do have to if you have a lot of photos and videos on your site.

I have some that are doing great and others need some work. Times change and we have to keep up. We keep up for our clients but for us, not so much. It is on my list. My site loads too slow. We just switched to lossless image compression. But I still have to go back to the old photos and apply now.

Well I don't experience that on my website normally

but as the nets images are typically only 96 dpi or less make sure you have adjusted your images appropriately for better load times
