We have uploaded the product images via Magento 2 admin-panel for our client site. For checking purpose, we have downloaded the image (which we have uploaded) from the front-end of the site. Upon checking, we have noticed that the size of the product image (original size is 530KB) reduced to 230KB.
While we investigate this, we have seen that the image which was appeared on the front-end was from product cache.
So, my question is, why the product cache images are displaying instead of the original size of the image?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
