I am very happy with your NextGen Gallery plugin for WordPress. I do have one thing I would like to be able to control though. It looks like the thumbnails are generated at 100% quality regardless of the image quality settings. I set all my images to 80% as I can see no visible difference when viewing 100% and 80%. It also helps with my Google Speed Insights test. It makes my website much quicker to load.
When I use the NextGen Gallery to create thumbnails at the default small size each image is 100% quality. This causes each image to be 40K bytes larger than they would need to be. The Google Speed Insights likes to complain loudly about this. 😉 I would like to request a feature be added to be able to explicitly set the image quality of thumbnails. Or if possible to have it set the image quality of the thumbnail to match the original image quality of the image added to the gallery. I make sure all my images are 80% using an image editor before uploading. I saved over 500K bytes per image doing this. I would like the same sort of optimization for the NextGen Gallery thumbnails.
Thank you for making this plugin!
