Website load time might affect sales and you may lose potential customers.

For better performance of the site, we have taken the call to optimize the images shown on site. To set this optimization a whole new section is added in Store configuration.

To access this function, go to, Store Configuration >> Site Setting >> Image Optimization

We have given options to optimize banner images, product images, and product gallery images, wherein Admin can manage the height and width of the images, manage their image quality and generate Webp images.

Webp is a modern image format that provides a lossless suppression of the images. The images created are 26% smaller as compared to PNGs. The compression will optimize your website speed and give a shorted loading time.
