🚀 User Site and Image Impact

When you turn on Network-based optimizations in Optimole, it lowers the image quality in a way that you can't really notice, but it significantly shrinks the file size. This makes your website load much faster without making it look any different. So, your visitors still get a great experience, even if they have a slow internet connection.

One important thing to note is that this feature is applied for lazy-loaded images, and it impacts the image size and quality according to the network connection.
