How do I speed up my PrestaShop store?

Question

First of all I'm wondering what is normal load time for PrestaShot 1.4.8.2 store? I know it's old but I don't want to upgrade it because automatic way doesn't work and I dont have time and nerves to set up all over in newer version. So, how can I make it lighter and faster?

 

My store is loading between 2 and 2.5 seconds and I have feeeling that this is extremelly slow.

 

I have changed all pictures from .png to .jpg eliminated all bad requests from code. What else can I do?
The most annoying is when I try to add article to cart. Sometimes it took few seconds before it is actually in cart. The animation of product leaving to cart is really slow. How can I fix that? Is there at least a way to switch off this animation?

 

I would like to know what are the right settings in Administration> Settings> Implementation? I have tried different settings but nothing can get my store loading time under 2 secunds.

Any proposal is welcome :unsure:

Just include css and js  in footer.tpl file..

 

This page has 9 external Javascript scripts. Try combining them into one.
This page has 5 external stylesheets. Try combining them into one.
This page has 21 external background images. Try combining them with CSS sprites.

if your store sometimes run fast, sometimes not  it mean that you've got troubles with host, not with prestashop
