I was curious and I wanted to ask you something for a long time because you know the inner workings.
When we upload product image the system makes couple of new files and when I check my site agains google page speed it always says they can be further compressed. Of course those advices are per their resolution and are most of those savings are from resizing them to lower res but this does not work for higher ones.
Can’t we use such services like kraken.io or resmushit to file down few more kb off those newly generated jpegs? Something like this resmush module but with more details and probably ajax upload to solve timeout problems like we had with image regeneration was solved in TB?
Or can’t we put those libaries in imagick module so those image metas be stripped by the module when generating the product images? And not uploaded somewhere and then downloaded - potentially speeding up image upload when creating products.
Now if we want to optimize those images we have to pay for kraken and upload the file structure in folders and FTP them back on our server.
