People are impatient in front a slow loading website, that's the result of a recent study, 4 second loading causing 24% of visitors to leave (Source statistica.com.). Content optimization is more efficient than any other optimization tool.

Joomla image optimization

Images can represent from 60% to 80% of a page weight, so an optimization can accelerate your page loading by x3 or more.
With an average of 25% of users that leave your website after 4 second of loading page, this is something crucial for your online business. And it's even more important on mobile devices were connection are usually slower.

Reduce image and pdf, not quality

The jpg, png, gif optimization algorithm is capable of reducing the image size by up to 85% (5x +), while the resulting photos are visually identical to the originals. We believe that image and pdf compression is a matter preserving the quality then reduce the size. Reducing the image and pdf size can be done using a massive compression of data and result a worsened quality. We detect already compressed media and return original files.

  • Compress automatically new images & pdf
  • Compress automatically existing images & PDF
  • Run a background optimization of all your images and get notified when it's done
  • Generate PDF report of your websites optimization

Very bad: I paid for one year then renewed my subscription hoping there would be no problem. All my photos were recycled due to a bug.
