What output file formats work for E-commerce platforms?


When output file size and loading time are of greater priority JPEG comes in handy with its fully controlled 'Quality level' which allows you to define its lossy compression

If you want the images on your website to load faster, it's better to set their output to 'JPEG Progressive: true'. It works by loading images in successive waves, you'll see a blurry or pixelated picture at first, but it'll clear out.

To do so, go to Output block set the file format to JPEG, adjust its Quality Level if needed (by default it's set to 75), and select Progressive: True.


If image quality requirements has higher priority over file size it’s better to go with PNG file format

PNG format is lossless, so the resulting image is always the same. Depending on how long it takes to compress a file, compression levels differ.

With CLAID functionality you can choose its compression effort (compression levels), whether its Optimal, Fast, or Best depends its processing time.
