BEST PRACTICES SERIES

Provider of media management solutions, Cloudinary announced it has joined forces with WebPagetest to deliver more detailed insights into how images impact a website’s load speed. Cloudinary will provide measurable and actionable information about how to go beyond simple compression to optimize web performance. The Cloudinary Website Speed Test Image Analysis Tool will enable WebPagetest users to discover how changes to image size, format selection, quality and encoding parameters can drastically improve website speed and ultimately result in a better user experience for web visitors.

Available now, Cloudinary’s Website Speed Test tool will enhance WebPagetest results by examining the content in the images and the formats used, as well as the size. Using its advanced algorithms, Cloudinary will show users how to encode, optimize, and resize images, and the impact that will have on page load time. Cloudinary takes into account many factors, including the exact content of an image and the need for responsive design, so images are encoded correctly and look their best regardless of device or viewport and the type of browser on which the page is viewed. Website Speed Test tool users then will have the option to leverage Cloudinary’s cloud-based solution to automate image management and optimization across their sites.
