Top-to-bottom, got it? When a visitor lands on your site, their browser starts reading from top-to-bottom. So before it can parse and render the HTML for the above-the-fold content on your site, it needs to wait to download and parse the coolfooter. End result? It takes longer to display the HTML for the above-the-fold content, which means that your visitors will perceive your site as being slower. No, images are not render-blocking. To assess whether or not your WordPress site currently has render-blocking resources, you can use Google PageSpeed Insights. All you do is enter the URL that you want to test.
