    33Worth reminding the Theme installer screen loads hundreds of big images, often 1200 by 900 pixels images. Also, unfortunately some themes use a non-optimized `screenshot.png` image which in some cases weights more than 2 MB. The theme installer screen then displays these images in an area of about 380 pixels, depending on the display's size, so I'd say loading such big images is highly inefficient. Ideally, the theme submission process should check for non-optimized images, or require an additional, smaller, image with a file size limit. Maybe consider alternative image sources and srcset and sizes, by the way these should be generated on the .org side.
