Animations can be distracting and may not be suitable for hero or product images, as they can draw attention away from the content. Lazy loading can cause a noticeable delay when animations are used. For essential images, it's better to load them conventionally for a smoother and faster display
Lazy loading is designed to prioritize the loading of images that are currently in the user's view, which can lead to slower loading times for images located further down the page.
Product and hero images are critical for user engagement and should load quickly. Delaying their loading can result in a poor user experience, especially on slower connections
Lazy loading can be overkill when applied to every single image on a web page. It can lead to increased complexity and potentially degrade the overall user experience. It's best to resolve lazy loading for images that are not immediately visible or secondary to the core content.
Consider using lazy loading libraries for images in menus and carousels to improve page load times and user experience while keeping the focus on core content
