Images Optimization

The "Image Optimization" addon provides an opportunity to reduce the size (in bytes) of images and thumbnails using external service without significant loss of image quality. This allows you to increase the page loading speed on your site that has a positive effect on its ranking in search engines.

The addon also supports converting images to WebP format. This allows to reduce image files size by 30-45% compared to JPEG while maintaining image quality.

Advantages of WebP format:

• The image loading is faster when loading a page

• The ability to choose the optimal image compression ratio

• If the user's browser does not support images in WebP format, the server will show the original images

• The addon does not delete the original images, when images are converted to WebP format, however it creates WebP copies next to the original ones

• The WebP copy is also deleted, when the original image is deleted

• Search engine ranking is increasing, as the use of modern formats has a positive effect on the site pages indexing

Pay attention: to convert images to WebP format successfully, firstly you must configure PHP on your server. Make sure WebP format support is enabled in the GD library on your server, or the Imagick library must be installed.

After installing the module for the convenience of working with images the "Administration->Image Optimization" page is shown. Here all store images with the necessary properties are displayed. You can also configure the CRON job to image optimization performed automatically without your participation.


- 2 modes (size reduction of the original images without any format changes and convertion to WebP)

- Easy image management panel with search and sorting;

- Ability to optimize the image in order to increase the speed of pages loading and increase the index Google PageSpeed tool;

- Ability to optimize the generated thumbnail images;

- Ability to create a backup image before optimization, followed by reduction;

- Ability to optimize the image directly on the upload;

- Ability to use CRON script on the server to automatically optimize images and thumbnails;

- Ability to view the image size before and after the optimization;

- The ability to download or delete the image from the page "Administration->Optimizing images";

- Ability to optimize only the new images;

- Ability to select the compression level of images;

- Supported image formats: JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIF (for и JPG, PNG, GIF (for convert to WebP)

This add on is bordering on magical. Went through all 5000
images faster than I thought it would and I was able to set it
to optimize all future image uploads.

Высокая эффективность при простоте в использовании! Большое спасибо разработчику за качественные продукты!
Модуль работает так, как заявлено.

Есть много полезных настроек, можно делать сжатие по-расписанию, либо сразу при загрузке картинок.
Качество сжатия потрясающее, разницы не видно, а вес у картинок бывает уменьшается в 3 раза.

Есть бэкапы и отдельная страница управления картинками, что замечательно для отслеживания состояния текущих изображений.

Спасибо за модуль.
Отличное решение. Модуль позволил значительно сжать мои картинки без потери их качества, тем самым значительно сократив вес страниц. Для главной страницы например уменьшил вес страницы на 1,2Мб, а это очень прилично. Огромное спасибо разработчикам за такой модуль.
Exactly what I was looking. Very useful for marketplaces where vendors uploading any size pictures. Good support and advise.
the addon really worked nice, according to how i expected it. i have been looking for a way to optimize images so i can have a better site speed, this addon did the job perfectly
Отличное и очень необходимое решение, для тех кто не думает какие картинки заливаются на сайт, часто (год спустя) после халатного залития разных картинок приходится столкнуться с тем, что вдруг и места нет на хостинге и сайт как то стал "тупить". Благодаря данному решению можно частично забыть об оптимизации тк картинки оптимизируются при добавлении сразу, плюс советую поставить так же модуль от этой же команды "Размер Детальных Изображений " который и вовсе проконтролирует размер изображений.

Большое спасибо разработчикам за помощь и консультацию в настройке модуля, желаю успехов и новых достижений!
Отличный модуль! Сжал все картинки почти в двое, при этом качество изображения вообще не изменилось. Реально ощутимо повысилась скорость загрузки категорий с иконками - это большой плюс!
Хотелось бы отметить обратную связь от разработчиков модуля - разъяснили по настройкам, помогли с конфликтующим модулем "обрезка картинок".
В общем очень рекомендую!
