Why Optimize Images?
High-quality images in a store allow client to view product details and make a final decision on purchase. The better the quality, the more server space they take and the lower the page load speed. That’s why it’s important to use high-quality image with minimal size.
Image Optimization add-on allows to reduce the image size without quality loss for any CS-Cart object: product, variation, blog, etc
Client won’t notice any difference in image quality, pages will load fast, and you’ll save server resource. As a bonus it also positively affects SEO.
