The WooCommerce Plugin is one of the most successful ones for WordPress. It helps establish e-commerce processes on the website and quickly deploy a full-featured online store.
The WooCommerce Plugin has been downloaded over 3 million times. And the site administrators notice that over time, the sites are getting slower: there is an increase in web page loading time and the purchase of additional space on the server disk is required as well.
Usually, this indicates a lack of optimization of website pages. Due to the large number of images the online store web pages may be loaded slowly. But one cannot consider total removal of the pictures from the website since the customers need them to check the item details before making a purchase.
Images are optimized in WooCommerce to speed up the website. The add-in for WordPress does not have its own tools to perform the task. Therefore a special plugin should be downloaded for image optimization in WooCommerce.
OptiPic will work with the images in the server. Optimizing images of a site on WooCommerce will begin immediately after the download and initial setup of the plugin.
Optimizing images in WooCommerce means reducing their size while preserving their quality and resolution. Thus the display of product details is keptfor the users’ convenience.
A special plugin for image compression in WooCommerce analyzes the file code. Apart from the necessary pixel data detail any picture contains plenty of information about shooting and editing time, equipment and software used for creating an image and so on.
Website image compression in WooCommerce using OptiPic involves the removal of unnecessary information. It allows reducing the size of images by up to 90%.
Image compression in WooCommerce provides one more obvious benefit of more free space of the server hard disks. It allows cutting expenses on buying the disk quotas, and developing the online store, filling it with goods and services.
