Compressing images

Hi, I've been reading about uploading images to Shopify.


According to this article Shopify compresses images before they are displayed on a site.  So is there a need to run images throught an optimization tool like tinypng prior to uploading them to Shopify?


As there doesn't appear to be a storage limit then it seems an extra step that isn't really needed.


What do other developers do?

There is nothing to worry about, just upload your original images. Shopify is going to optimize them on their end anyways and deliver the images in webp format -
