Design Add On ($299 Set Up, $0 Additional Monthly)The primary purpose for lazy load is to speed up a website. It allows the content that is view-able on the users screen to load first, then as they scroll down it continues to load the additional elements as they are needed. This keeps websites from needing pagination or the next and previous links that you see on many galleries or other lists of content. It can also be used as a design element to display content with a cool animation effect as the user scrolls down the page.
Lazy Load Features Include:(but are not limited to)
- Used for increased speedBy only loading the content that would be viewable on the screen when the page is visited, the time your users spend waiting on your site to finish showing is greatly reduced. Then as they scroll down the page, the content loads as needed. This is ideal for large lists of images or other items.

- Used to enhance design & user experienceUsing the ability to load content as the user scrolls down the page can add an additional layer to the experience. With different animations, each item or group of items on a page can fly in from different directions or appear at specific times.
