This plugin allows you to upload a compressed version of all your image (jpeg,gif,png and even webp) in media manager.

How it works ?

When you upload an image (jpeg, gif, png), the plugin listen the event file.upload from media manager and catch your file to send a request to Kraken API. Then, it returns a response with a compressed image that will be saved to the media library.

Why should i use it ?

Using Lossy compression from Kraken API, your media library will be between 50-70% lighter than before and then your site will be loaded faster. It will increase your page speed performance cause it is a very important thing to bring your visitors, informations faster than others.
