Google PageSpeed requires images to be compressed a little lossy. This means the visual quality will be a little less, hardly noticeable by visitors. The sizes of the images in Kilobytes will be a lot less. This will which will cause your site to load faster, especially on mobile connections. We have a script available which you can run as a Cron Job:


Example cron job:

25 2 * * * flock -n $LOCKDIR/imgopt $HOME/bin/ &>>$IMGLOG

The script will make backups of images in ~/backup before changing it. If you only want to compress lossless, so the image will not change visually only reduce its byte size (but less), you can use the script:
