They haven't talked with me saying it's fixed. I'm happily paying imigix to solve this problem for me.
Shopify may have resolved the issue quietly as they're not usually ones to publish when they resolve long standing issues I've found.
I haven't retested lately as I enjoy the flexibility of using imigix.
@WWW.COLORADDICTED.COM - Great. In case you do want to speed up your store, it's very easy.
We have published a blog post on ImageKit.io and Shopify integration with easy to replicate steps. Now store owners can themselves integrate ImageKit.io in their shopify store and get instant benefits.
ImageKit will automatically serve the same images in less bandwidth, hence the increased speed. This will ultimately increase conversion on your store.
Very interesting topic. As a developer I have also been looking into this area.
why not combine the efforts with a simple lazy load technique, so images won't download before they come into the viewport, aka the users' visible area on the screen? It's a simple fix and I'd be happy to help you out.
Wow. I've just launched my first shopify site and can't believe this image compression situation. All my carefully compressed images are significantly larger and the site is scoring terribly on the Google PageSpeed Insights.
On a related note, I'm also surprised there is little option for serving alternate content for mobile. It's so easy in Joomla and Wordpress and straight html. I posted another thread about wanting to have two slideshows that I could control on and off with @media css and heard crickets.
I like much of Shopify, but the image issue is enough to make me seriously doubt using for future sites.
