Image CMS compression?


#1

Hello, Webflow community and @webflow!

Does .png and .jpg images compressed when they’ve uploaded on your CDN (dark2… etc)?

If I use one big picture (1500x1500 px for example), but I need it in 2 versions (thumbnail 100x100 px and full image 1500 x 1500 px):
– should I cut it by myself and upload 2 different versions of that picture?
– should I compress it by other services before uploading them, or Webflow compresses pictures by itself?

Thank you.

Hello!

Thanks for reaching out, and excellent question!

Webflow generates responsive image variants automatically.

If your picture is bigger than 3200px wide, Webflow will generate
seven variants: 3200px, 2600px, 2000px, 1600px, 1080px, 800px, and
500px.

If you need pictures smaller than 500px to be generated, I would
recommend scaling it yourself and uploading.
