  • Compress images without quality loss
  • Increase site speed and conversion rate
  • Improve search engine ranking

Why?


Faster website


Properly optimised images can save many bytes of data. With optimised images, your website will load faster.


Improved search engine ranking


Search engine ranking will improve because of faster loading speed. Google started using site loading speed for SEO ranking in 2010 - http://goo.gl/V8Xx4m


You can check your page speed with this google tool: https://goo.gl/yG6ejW


Here is example of PageSpeed score for optimised and unoptimised web page:



  • PageSpeed score before compression: 75/100 - https://goo.gl/HBg3ay

  • PageSpeed score after compression: 87/100 - https://goo.gl/fl3NXv

Increase conversion rate


According to surveys done by Akamai and Gomez.com [1], almost half of users expect a website to load in 2 seconds or less and they tend to abandon a website that isn’t loaded within 3 seconds [2]

☞ Features


Automatically optimize all existing images


When you install the Crush.pics app, it will go through all images and optimize them until it reaches 5 MB of images - which is FREE. After that you can subscribe to a plan and continue with optimization.

Automatically optimise new images.


When you add new product images or new asset images, Crush.pics will automatically optimize it.

Restore original


Crush.pics will also store your original images for 30 days, if you wish you can restore the originals at any time.

Batch Process


If you are not happy with the compression you can simply do a Batch Restore. It will restore all compressed images to the original. We keep backup for 30 days.

Image SEO


Rename File Name and Alt tag for every image. Optimize your images not just for site speed, but for better SEO results.

Same quality, smaller images


There is no quality loss with LOSSLESS compression, all images will be same as original. So your products, photographs or art will look as crisp as in the originals! Compression will go up to 30%


If you choose LOSSY compression, there will be small loss in quality but it's not visible to human eye. Compression will go up to 70%

How it works?


Set and forget



  1. Install Crush.pics and choose compression type LOSSLESS or LOSSY

  2. Choose compression mode: AUTOMATIC or MANUAL

  3. If you choose AUTOMATIC, Crush.pics will start compressing your images automatically

  4. If you go over 5MB/month, choose a plan that suits your needs

  5. Newly added images are compressed automatically


After installing, if you choose AUTOMATIC mode, Crush.pics will go through all your Product images and queue them for compression. In FREE tier you have 5MB/month of free compression. After that you can purchase a plan and continue with compression.


After you purchase a plan, all asset images will be added to compression queue as well.


Also, any new image you add to products or assets will be added to queue automatically.

Doesn't work with our image.

We wanted to make sure the compression algorithm for lossless was powerful enough (30% announced sounds quite low in comparison to tools like TinyPng), so we ran a trial on one specific product.
We optimized all images, lossless at first, then a few with lossy compression.

The app says xx% compression, but Google Page Speed says nothing changed.
Ok, we downloaded the so said "compressed" images, from Shopify (changing the ?variable to make sure we have the latest version)... Nothing changed.
So, let's try to download the preview image displayed on screen that is supposed to show a comparison between the old and the new image.
Surprise... Same image, same size.

The comparison tool is very fancy, but both images are not on the same layer, the second image has a small offset of a few pixels, so it gives the impression the image is not identical, but it is.

Again, it might just be a bug, but the fact the tool says the image was compressed by "xx%", and that the comparison tool second image is offset a bit is not reassuring.

Edit:
I'm suspending my judgment temporarily. We've been in touch with the developers and it looks like our image are already too optimized for their app to have any significant effect on one hand, and that Shopify is messing up with optimized images (increasing their size) on its end.

For now, my first conclusion is that this app is pointless for those who know how to save their images (photoshop, gimp, or recompressed with online tools like TinyPNG) because Shopify already has its own algorithm.
Since Shopify algorythm increase the size of overoptimized images, negating the benefit of this app, it sounds pointless.
See here about image compression issues with Shopify: https://ecommerce.shopify.com/c/ecommerce-discussion/t/shopify-image-quality-optimization-round-2-with-stats-38-improvement-304813

We're in touch with the developpers, if something come up, I'll update my review;
Until then: I do not recommend the app to merchants already saving their images for internet use with proper comrpession.

Yeah, it made my site slower. I condensed the images thinking it was going to speed up my site a bit, but that didn't happen

Outstanding app - the automated Alt Tag batching is epic. The thought of re-photoshopping all our store images gave me nightmares, making Crush.pics a dream come true.

Worked perfectly and impressed with the detailed info. moearth.com

I love this app, so easy to use and my photos look great but do not slow down my store.

Cut total image size nearly in half (48%) with minimal quality reduction and minimal effort. There is no reason not to get this app.

Great app for resizing images, thank you for making this awesome tool available!
