Image optimization by Kraken.Io
Because customers and search engines are happy about smaller images.
Improve your customer satisfaction
By optimizing the image size, every customer has more fun browsing through your shop. Because the smaller the image files are, the more the amount of data to be transferred is reduced and the faster the page is completely set up the amount of data to be transferred is also reduced and the faster the page is completely set up.
Improve your search engine ranking
Since 2010, Google has set the loading speed of a website as an important criterion for ranking the search results.
In other words: shorter loading times are rated better. Kraken.io can help you improve your search engine ranking by reducing your page load times.
Reduce your operating costs
How much do you spend on bandwidth and storage?
Certainly more than would be necessary. With Kraken.io you can significantly reduce these costs, because pictures take up to 50% of the storage space on average. You might even get by with a smaller web hosting contract after optimization.

Way of working
The plugin works with two cron jobs. The first one searches for all available images in the specified folders and saves them in a queue. The second takes care of the actual optimization of the images.
The plugin provides an interface with which the success of image optimization can be checked. This can be achieved in two ways:
In the backend navigation under "Contents" you will find the menu item "Kraken.io"
