Lacking lazy load for images in background

SiteOrigin Editor allows background images in line (Page Builder) as well as in widget as a style element. Such pictures are slowing down page speed since they are loaded immediately, no lazy load.
(Same applies for the cover image in Video Player widget)
It would be great to have the same lazy load funtionality as in Image widget

    Hi Andreas,

    SiteOrign Widgets Bundle widgets are compatible with lazy loading plugins so I recommend installing one of those to add lazy loading for images and videos. Popular options are:

    a3 Lazy Load
    Jetpack (The Lazy Images module)

    It’s possible a caching/minify/performance plugin you’re already using may include lazy load so I recommend checking its documentation to confirm.

    Kind regards,
