Compression application
« on: February 05, 2023, 01:28:28 PM »
Hi Devs,  Happy 2023!!

Please provide some clarity on several settings regarding compression levels,  I find the info you AbanteCart docs confusing as to the actually application.

1.    Output compression level -  the compression level  is applied when a customer on storefront makes a request.  The compression is applied to the entire page, not just images?  The HIGHER the compression setting the MORE compress is applied.
Do you have any stats on the increase on server at different compression settings?

2.   Jpeg Images Compression -   this affects ONLY thumbnails?  And is it applied the first time a thumbnail is generated and it remains compressed until cache is cleared?  Or is it each time the image is called?

thanks for the feedback

The Output compression level is about GZIP compression level for the server and not related to images compression.
Jpeg Images Compression is applied only once image like a thumbnail is generated from the source (image resource)

Hello! Clarifying the intricacies: Output compression level pertains to server GZIP compression, not image compression. Notably, JPEG images undergo compression solely during the generation of thumbnails from the source, ensuring optimal clarity in the final output.
