With digital revolution continuing to transform the way businesses interact with their customers and audiences, people are demanding more newer forms of empowerment.  Organizations now must address their demands to offer a great user experience and engage them through various channels. For all these to continue, it is imperative that your site offers its peak performance, has a quick loading time and at the same time offers everything that your visitors demand.

Sitefinity CMS development is very popular among business owners because of its rich features that no other CMS offers. It is easy to optimize your website with Sitefinity and in this article, we will discuss how you can integrate the tool Kraken.io with Sitefinity and optimize the images on your site.

Using images over the years:

Websites have evolved a lot since their inception in 1991.  With technological progress, the websites are also pushed in the direction where visitors prefer visuals to remain engaged. Today’s web pages must not only provide relevant information, but also some ways that are really interesting and will retain their attention. In this fierce market competition, business websites are now relying more on images and video as content. And this has resulted in bigger web pages over the years. 

Today, as per research, average web page size that was about 702 KB has become 3545 KB in 2018. This heavy visual engagement has become painful now and it is time to optimize the page size and the load time while delivering exceptional content. Now the struggle begins.

Kraken.io has come to rescue:

Kraken.io is a popular plugin that helps you to optimize and resize existing and new Sitefinity website images easily. The main idea is to use it and reduce the size of the images before they are used in your Sitefinity website. Sitefinity CMS luckily offers a mechanism to plug into the file processing flow so that the users don’t have to work on the images more than simply uploading them.

Reduce the weight of the image without compromising on the quality:

While resizing the images for your Sitefinity website, you have to be sure that the quality of the image is not compromised while trying to getting the smallest possible file size. Though it is possible to reduce an image to a fraction of its original size, the process often leads to visual degradation. Karken.io’s optimization pipeline helps to make tremendous savings and the results are also highly appreciable.

Optimize the images for tablets and mobile users:

With more people accessing the content through mobile devices or tablets, reducing the load time should be one of your chief consideration. Now don’t waste your user’s bandwidth with un-optimized and oversized images as they won’t stick around.  It is important to serve them with images that don’t have any extra or unnecessary weight.  Kraken.io’s resizing feature will help you to generate optimized images for all your targeted devices.

Reduce the operating cost:

With big images for your Sitefinity website, you are just spending more bandwidth and storage than you need to be. Kraken.io helps you reduce those expenses to more than half and the images will now occupy only 50% space on an average and your saved bandwidth can be really very impressive.

Summary:

Images for your Sitefinity website can be optimized by using the Kraken.io plugin and this will help you save money on bandwidth and storage space and at the same time accelerate your website.
