CMS Joomla is one of the most popular platforms for building websites. It is used for millions of resources from blogs to online stores.
Pages of nowadays websites often contain plenty of images. Large quantity of images reduces the website loading speed. This can discourage a user from further browsing the website.
Image compression in Joomla can be performed by the OptiPic plugin. Its operation is fully automated. The plugin compresses images in Joomla with the ratio of up to 90%.
No special skills are required to operate the plug-in for image compression in CMS Joomla. Plugin configuration does not take much time.
Image compression plugin for Joomla can process JPG and PNG files, which are the most popular on the Internet. OptiPic uses its own compression algorithms which allows keeping image quality unchanged while reducing its size.
Image compression in Joomla improves both the loading speed and SEO-position. When ranking websites in search results the web browsers typically consider such a parameter as the page loading speed. Using this plugin you can gain competitive advantage, with almost no changes on your website.
Using the plugin for image in Joomla allows you to significantly speed up the loading of pages. The average image compression ratio is 70%. Image optimization contributes to freeing up disk space which allows cutting expenses on additional quotas and encourages further development of the resource.
Optimizing images in Joomla does not require shutting off the display of the site. Users will see no changes in the website during the image optimizationprocess and will keep having the website available. They will only notice the faster display of the web pages.
Website image optimization in Joomla is an important step that should be implemented by administrators when working with sites. Besides, the OptiPic plugin requires only the initial setup, and after that it operates automatically. The optimum logic of the plugin made it possible to minimize the load on CPU and REM. In fact, the load does not affect the website performance at all.
The reduction of pictures in Joomla has a positive effect not only on the download speed, but will also on improving the SEO positions. Search engines when ranking in search results often appreciate such an option, as the page load ing speed. Using this plugin allows to gain advantage over the competitors with making almost no changes on the website.
OptiPic helps facilitate the administration and development of the site.
Image optimization is special processing of a graphic file in order to minimize its size without loss of visual quality.
To carry out this procedure, there are a large number of fairly complex algorithms. However, they are all based on the same basis - all the service data there (for example, the name of the program that stores the file, etc.) must be removed from the graphic file, and also, using special programs, merge / smooth similar colors.
As a result, we get the same image, which visually has not changed. However, the volume (weight) of this file in bytes will be much less than the original. If this processing is carried out correctly, the image file can be reduced to 98% without losing image quality.
This means that the pictures on the pages of the site will be loaded many times faster after the optimization.
It has been proven that website acceleration can improve behavioral factors, as well as increase website conversion (increase sales). The longer the page of the site loads, the fewer customers will be able to perform certain target actions there. If your site on the Internet will not work fast enough, you have every chance to miss your potential income. Acceleration of the online resource will provide an opportunity to improve the conversion and due to this significantly increase revenue and attract more customers.
A page of any site most often consists of:
Such an item as an image occupies most of the entire volume on the site’s pages and is the “heaviest” part of the pages. Reduction (optimization) of images will undoubtedly significantly make it faster to download any online resource.
Accordingly, if you change (down) the size of the images, all pages of the site will start loading much faster.
Compressing the images on the site will make it possible to reduce their volume to 75-98%, without losing their visual quality.
