We also offer 15 GB, 50 GB, and 100 GB plans. It's easy to upgrade via the app dashboard. Our Free Plan gives you up to 25 MB of product image compression.
Given that an average web page now weighs in at 3MB (megabytes), and images make up the bulk of the download, we should be doing anything in our power to help speed up our stores. Image compression takes your original image and removes unused data to return an image that, in many cases, looks identical but is much smaller in size. Smaller images equal quicker page loads, quicker page loads equal happier customers — it’s a win-win.
Whether you are starting out or have a store with thousands of images Crush.pics has a plan for you. During setup, we’ll recommend the most appropriate plan for your store but you are free to change your plan whenever you need.
This isn’t an easy question to answer as everyone’s needs are different. Generally, this is enough for a store that has XXX products. We’ll recommend a plan for you when you install — you can of course upgrade and downgrade as you need to.
Crush.pics automatically compresses product images, collection images, blog featured images, and asset images (images that make up your store’s theme). Unfortunately, due to restrictions from Shopify we are unable to automatically compress images that are stored in the “Files” section. These include images in the main content area of your blog posts and pages and any images that you add via your store’s theme customisation panel.
Crush.pics is designed to be a “set it and forget it” app. Once you are happy with your settings Crush.Pics will work away in the background compressing and renaming as you go. Of course, you can use your dashboard to change settings, view your image compression savings, and change your renaming format whenever you need.
We recommend using our manual upload and compression feature for images that will be used in your blog posts, pages, and your store’s theme customisation (e.g. banners and hero images). Sadly, due to restrictions from Shopify API apps aren’t able to access these programmatically — which is why we included our manual upload and compression feature!
