Support » Plugin: WP Flow Plus » wp-imageflow2 – reflect image size, page speed, yslow, image optimization issue

  • Resolved Shashank Shekhar


    I am using this plugin from many used in my site. All things work fine but one problem.
    I have optimized my site for speed i.e. scripts, css, images minifying, compression, combine, etc. using google page-speed and yslow recommendations. Also, using wp-supercache and better-wordpress-minify plugins for speed.
    Now, all images optimized except the images generated dynamically by this wp-imageflow2 plus plugin. I am getting in page speed/yslow that image size can be optimized to reduce it upto 88%-95% . As the image flow slider have many images all images generating have heavy size issues, making site slower.

    To explain, here the recommendation what I see in pagespeed plugin in my firefox/firebug window.

    “Serve scaled images”
    “The following images are resized in HTML or CSS. Serving scaled images could save 93.8KiB (90% reduction).”

    http://mysite/wp-content/plugins/wp-imageflow2/php/reflect2.php?img=http%3A%2F%2Fmysite%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F01%2Fimage1.png&bgc=%234E5162 is resized in HTML or CSS from 247×450 to 39×71. Serving a scaled image could save 27.5KiB (97% reduction).
    http://mysite/wp-content/plugins/wp-imageflow2/php/reflect2.php?img=http%3A%2F%2Fmysite%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F01%2Fimage2.png&bgc=%234E5162 is resized in HTML or CSS from 249×450 to 52×95. Serving a scaled image could save 24.1KiB (95% reduction).


    So here the actual question… Could this plugin can be coded/fixed in some way so that the images or reflect generated images can be of same size what need to display, rather than hard resizing to much smaller value?
    If this plugin can fix this issue, the site will have better optimized speed.
    (may be not possible to do use exact size images, but some sort of way must need to generate approximate size image what needed, instead of 95% superscaled images!!)

    Let me know please.

  • This plugin works by scaling the images as they glide through the carousel. The best you can do is ensure that the image size when centered is close to your configured medium size image as that is what is used from the media library.

    If you are using a folder of images, you would be better off using the media library since WordPress generates the medium size for you.
