For speed optimization Google suggested certain images to be compressed from GIF to PNG.

I have placed them in the folder mentioned in the manifest. But after loading the site and upon inspecting the site images its again loading the .gif images.

whats happening? I'm just an amateur in Magento. any help would be appreciated.

and Flush Catalog Images Cache.

It's always good to have n98-magerun. It's a universal tool to manage your platform through the command line.

For Linux, the simplest way is to run a terminal, and go to your Magento destination.

wget https://files.magerun.net/n98-magerun.phar 
chmod +x ./n98-magerun.phar

To get it on Windows, you need to visit:


And download it manually.

Once you have it just run:

./n98-magerun.phar cache:flush

The other way to do it without command line. Just go to your admin panel. Next steps are:

System->Cache Management->Flush

It's simple as that.
