Web pages without images are just plain boring. Adding images however, increases the size of the page, which in turn makes the page load slower.
Azapi has always used open source lossless image compression tools to optimize images uploaded by users. Recently we have found 2 paid for online services for optimizing .png and .jpg files to a level not matched by any of the existing alternatives out there.
We have invested in these technologies, and every image that is now uploaded, is ran through these services to reduce image sizes, save bandwidth and disk space.
The end result is faster loading web pages and hopefully, happier customers.
