How long are images stored by Imagify?
Images sent via the API or plugins are stored for one hour. Using the online application, images are stored for 24 hours (with a free account) and for unlimited time if you have a paid subscription.
What is the difference between the Normal, Aggressive and Ultra optimization levels?
Normal compression is a "lossless" optimization. This means there is no loss of image quality. Aggressive and Ultra compression are more powerful, so the picture quality will be somewhat reduced. The weight of the image will be much less.
How does the optimization process work?
The image optimization process is performed on our servers. Once done, Imagify returns the optimized image to your server.
