Images can have a detrimental effect on the loading time of your website. But since the true essence of every website lies in the visual appeal that it gains from images, we know for sure that images are never going to go away. So if you need to compress your images without losing their quality, then you must try Imagify.
It is an image compression tool which comes in a variety of pricing options including a free plan. Depending on your requirements, you can pick a plan that is best suited for your site.
We used Imagify’s free version to check its abilities and we found it to be amazing. It definitely has some great features that you must check out if you are a website owner.
