    I am wondering my images library – can’t see the thumbnails there. And also am wondering why the product images on thumbnails load so slow.. I have set LQIP loading type for images – does it use thumbnail size or something else?

    Here my speed optimization settings:
    and and

    Should I change something?
    I have these settings for thumbnail size:

    But I am wondering does the theme use the thumbnails or load the whole original picture instead of a thumbnail? How to check if thumbnails are used correctly?

    I recently noticed also one product that does not crop to 1×1 in thumbnail. Is it because the picture is too small? it is originally 236×300 px (one of my vendors loaded it)

    LQIP loading uses another preview images than the thumbnail size, it uses 10x10px images. If you switch from Lazy loading to LQIP then install Regenerate thumbnails plugin and regenerate thumbnails for all the images you have to generate 10×10 preview images.
    If LQIP or Lazy loading do not suit your needs you can disable optimization loading and load default thumbnails for your images that you set in Media settings or in Theme Options > WooCommerce > Product images (depending on type of element that you use: products or posts).
