Image Optimization

Image optimization for web is one of the most important elements of delivering faster pages. Having large image files or a high number of individual images can significantly impact load times, and unrendered images result in poor user experience. Kraken optimizes all common image file types by compressing them so that visitors receive images that work best with their device type and browser.

Kraken can also resize images on the fly to match HTML sizing, change the image file type if necessary, extend image caching, and inline images directly into the HTML or CSS, which reduces the number of server requests.

To see how Kraken can reduce image sizes by 50% or more, visit the Kraken docs.
