Magento (CE126.96.36.199) store with 30K products. I use
Magmi to import products from a csv datafeed everyday. The product images are provided in more than one sizes (
2500x2500) by my suppliers. Some of the products have multiple images/photos taken from different angles. I have been using the images with the best quality. But this causes a disk space problem.
I tried to find an image compressor / optimiser. I tested
jpegtran but the compression has been less than 1% over 50K image files.
I have 2 questions:
90% of my disk is full right now. I need to take a quick action. I'd like to import the images with less quality in order to free up some space on my servers disk. Those images have different URLs. What if I change the product image URLs (
image, small_image, thumbnail) in my magmi import table?
- is it going to overwrite the existing image files
- or is it going to create new ones on the disk? What will happen to the previous product images? Do I need to delete them manually?
Do you have a different suggestion to compress those images?
