Enercos - Single Product eCommerce Shopify Theme

Did you know that nearly half of your website visitors expect your site to load in 2 seconds or less? Even worse, most will abandon your site if it fails to load within 3 seconds.

The good news is you can significantly reduce the number of abandoning visitors by speeding up your website.

Images often account for most of the downloaded bytes on a web page. If you’re looking to significantly boost your page speed, the first thing you need to do is to optimize images on your Shopify store.

Below are 7 image optimization Shopify apps for lightning fast loading.

1. Crush.pics ‑ Image Compression

Compress All Existing And New Images In One Click

When you install Crush.pics, it will go through all your images and optimize them. Whenever you add a new product or asset image, Crush.pics will automatically optimize it with no work from you.

Tidy Your Image SEO

Automatically rename all image File Names and Alt tags to optimize your images further for search engines. Use your product data to go from an image file name that looks like this: DSC_0005.jpg to this: Brand_Womens_Cotton_Tshirt_White_ShortSleeve.jpg

Batch Restore Originals

Crush.pics will store all your original images for 30 days, and you can revert to your original images during that time. You can do this for any image manually, or do a Batch Restore and revert all your compressed images to their original version.

Same Quality, Smaller Images

Choose between Lossless or Lossy compression. With LOSSLESS compression, your images will be as crisp as the original, and you can expect compression of up to 30%.

For biggest savings, choose LOSSY compression. There will be small, barely visible loss in image sharpness, but your compression will go up to 70%.
