The image optimization finds non-optimized images in PNG and JPEG at your website and automatically converts them to next-gen image formats like WEBP. The optimizations runs with several quality settings and the outputs are checked so that you get compression without perceptible distortion.Learn More →
No binding time
It should be easy to use and easy to test. We know the value that our image optimization brings, and we also want to make it as simple as possible for you to try it out. Therefore no binding time applies for the image optimization.Learn More →
ShimmerCat Image Optimization is simply added as a standalone CDN to serve only image requests

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a service worker?
Can you combine ShimmerCat's Image Cdn with other CDNs?
Can I control the service on my own?
Do ShimmerCat cache all my images?
Yes! ShimmerCat caches all the images served by the main domain, whether they are optimized or not. This means that the load on the origin server will be reduced.
Why serve images in next-gen formats?
AVIF, JPEG2000 and WebP formats all have significantly better compression and quality characteristics compared to old and traditional PNG and JPEG. By encoding images in next-generation formats you’ll per say improve loading times and consume less cellular data additional to better quality and improved user experience.
