Description

We could use lossless image compression for all the images. ImageOptim.app is very good beacause it uses a lot of different compression tools and it's able to compress a lot of images from WordPress.

Welcome to trac.

Core is currently using grunt-contrib-imagemin as a part of the build (see #25169 for the discussion around its inclusion). It uses the some of the same tools under the hood as ImageOptim, but at the added benefit of being more platform agnostic). At this time, switching to a different tool isn't something that I would recommend without some clear numbers that demonstrate a change. That said, it's also possible that the settings for imagemin could be tweaked to improve compression.

  • Focuses performance removed
  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm going to close this as worksforme due to the existing use of grunt-contrib-imagemin. If there are specific recommendations on how to improve that setup or alternative cross platform tools worth considering, we should open specific tickets for them.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
