  • Ticket #33642 – Description

    initial v2  
    1 The file sizes of images produced by the current Imagick editor in WordPress can be reduced by implementing many of the settings found in research done by Dave Newton (@dnewton) and outlined in his Smashing Magazine article [http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2015/06/efficient-image-resizing-with-imagemagick/ Efficient Image Resizing With ImageMagick]. We'll have to be certain that any improved compression settings take into account the CPU resources required to process the images so that installs on smaller shared hosting environments can handle processing large images.
     1This ticket is a placeholder for patches of proposed changes to Imagick settings in the [https://wordpress.org/plugins/ricg-responsive-images/ RICG feature plugin].
     2
     3The plugin's Imagick settings reduce file size by up to 50%.
     4
     5These changes are being considered separately for merge because during development, it was found that the current methods require too much RAM usage for some shared hosts.
     6
     7Tests for compared CPU and memory usage required for consideration/approval.
