E-Commerce seems to be a complicated process. However, ready-made scripts of online stores allow you to launch a website and get the first sale.
CMS TomatoCart is an example of such a script. It is easily installed on most web hostings and launched in a couple of hours.
In the long run, the e-stores face a common problem — page loading speed slows down, and users leave for competitors that provide a fast loading site.
The e-stores accelerating will require optimizing images in TomatoCart. But CMS has no standard means for that, and manual optimization may take too much time. Therefore it is best to upload the OptiPic plugin to optimize the images in TomatoCart.
This solution helps those who need to optimize images in TomatoCart. It works automatically and consumes minimum resources of CPU and RAM.
Image optimization in TomatoCart will be applied to every file found by the sript. Moreover, OptiPic will be processing newly downloaded files as well.
Theoperating principle of the plugin for image compression in TomatoCart is rather simple: it analyzes the code of the picture and removes redundant information. Such data as the date and time of image shooting, the kind of equipment and software used are unlikely to be useful for the e-stores’ users.
Image compression in TomatoCart helps to remove unnecessary data and reduce the image size by 70%. This helps increase the speed of the e-store page loading and reduce the users’ requirement for connection speed.
It should be mentioned that website image compression in TomatoCart also helps SEO-optimization. Search engines provide higher ranking for the sites with faster page display for the users.
