I assume by "weight" you are referring to size in bytes.

The size of a single image isn't a good metric, but the combined size of all page content (including all images) tends to average about 3MB on modern graphic-heavy sites. Of course, if you can achieve what you need with a smaller size, it will benefit your site's performance.

thank you very much
