How to use Image optimization in Thrive Themes
Why to use image optimization?
Image optimization is very important because the speed in which your website / pages are loaded is essential for the visitor’s first opinion. If you have huge pictures on your page and the bandwidth of the visitor is limited then your visitors have to wait until they are loaded. This can induce the visitor to leave your site immediately.
So, the image optimisation’s secret is to reduce as much the size of the images without major quality loss of them.
How to enable Image Optimization with Thrive Themes?
As it says, the “No compression” option will disable the compression and use the images with their original size and quality.
“Lossy Compression” will optimize the images by reducing slightly the quality, in an almost unobservable way, and reduces their size dramatically.
This option keeps the images quality, but slightly reduces the size of them.
Note: The process is automatical after you set up this option every uploaded image will be optimized how you set up in the Thrive Options. The pictures you uploaded before applying the change won’t be compressed.
