Image Optimizer

Permalink 1 user found helpful
We've just released Image Optimizer, a (paid) add-on that reduces the file size of JPG, PNG, GIF, and SVG images.

- Smaller images, expect at least an average of 10% size reduction;
- Faster loading websites;
- Higher rating by search engines and e.g. Google PageSpeed;
- Progressive JPG images, which results in a better loading experience;

Do you want to try the add-on first? Please send a PM, and we will send you credentials to a test concrete5 installation.

Feedback and suggestions are welcome of course!

HI A3020,

This looks like a super useful add-on.

I use pngquant on a regular basis for compressing PNG files. The reduction in file size is substantial and without any visible reduction in image quality.

I was able to test the Image Optimizer add-on and see what kind of file savings were possible. It looks like all images will be optimized, at least a modest amount, but poorly optimized JPEG and PNG files are greatly reduced in size.

- A large PNG file with a transparent background was 484KB. After optimizing it was 156KB.
- A medium size JPEG file was 44KB. After optimizing it was 23KB.

The savings will depend on the image and if it is already optimized or semi-optimized.

I can see this add-on being used in combination with the core Image Uploading automatic resize feature. This would address the common problem of users uploading very large, unoptimized images and damaging page load performance.
