"We use ShimmerCat to always serve the best possible file format for each customer. At the same time we also future-proof our setup, for example by using AVIF rather than WEBP and also for even newer formats like JPEG-XL when they arrive"

ShimmerCat's seamless integration image optimization helped to remove maintenance work for Nudie Jeans
ShimmerCat has helped us to setup our very own dedicated solution for image optimization, and they always answer directly when you ask something.
We have probably mostly used them to service the best possible file format for each customer. And to secure the future, for example AVIF rather than WEBP and in the future an even newer format when it comes.
They download the original files from different places depending on the URL address, so there are a bunch of rules, for example: if filename = "/media/files/*" forward from address XX, if filename = "/img/*" download from address YY and compress.
At our static domain cdn.nudiejeans.com we do not only have images but also css, js etc, and no other image solution could handle such a setup.
We have a dedicated Slack channel where we directly can get support and valuable advice regarding image optimization.
