Image optimization is an important part of building a successful ecommerce business.
Oversized images take longer to load, so it is important that you keep your images as small as possible.
Google uses page load time as a factor in their ranking algorithm.
Image Optimizer takes care of each graphic element on your site, processing it to make the page work faster and appear higher in the Google search. Typical compression ranges from 50%-60%.
When you run Image Optimizer, it optimizes the first 5 product images. You can quickly and easily compare the original image with the optimized image.
When you add new product image or new asset image, you will have the ability to optimize only new images.
Image Optimizer can periodically look up for new images and optimize them every hour.
Image Optimizer will also store your original images, if you wish you can restore the originals at any time.
Image Optimizer supports JPEG, PNG (including transparent PNGs), GIF (including animated GIFs) and SVG images.
1¢ per image. Due to the Shopify policy, the minimum payment for an optimization is $0.50.
