Also remember to always download images larger than 1000 x 800 pixels, it makes for breath-taking definition when resized.

Where Not To Use Images with Inline CSS Styles.

Your blog have several different positions to upload images to, where you should avoid your Header and Background Images to be of a designed nature. When you use these types of images in these positions the inline CSS Styles will get recognized and recorded. For your header and Background images I strongly advise using natural pictures.

Where is it Safe to Use Images with Inline CSS Styles?

When you write your blog post, you should have an option for "Set Featured Image" which should be at the bottom right inside your post editing window. This is where these styles will not be recognized, and you can pretty much use any image without your blog being influenced.

Conclusion

In order to remove all Inline CSS Styles from your blog, if the search result indicate so the best way is to try different images. Inline CSS Styles can do quite a bit of damage to your site Google rating, and ultimately the site Google Rating Speed. The tool mentioned will reveal all areas on your site that need a little fine tuning, and you just need to work with that tool.
