Incredibly small file sizes

Sirv optimises images like you wouldn’t believe, without sacrificing image quality. It actually delivers high 85% quality by default, yet your file sizes will be up to 60% smaller. Get them even smaller by lowering the default quality.

It’s secret is to deliver the most appropriate image dimensions in the most suitable image format. For Chrome and Opera users, that's usually WebP, the ingeniously optimized image format from Google, supported by Chrome and Opera.

 

Perfect image dimensions

Automatically scaled to the optimal width/height, images are never larger than they need to be. It puts an end to the common Magento problem of serving the nearest size image from a limited set of predefined sizes.

Responsive and lazy loading images, can also be delivered by Sirv. By loading images only when they are needed, it’s another bandwidth saving benefit to accelerate your page load.

 

The only complete image CDN solution

Every possible refinement in image delivery is included in the Sirv extension for Magento. Unlike other extensions which perform one or two tasks, Sirv actually takes a copy of your original images and regenerates them instantly at any size and format. It’s a smart service that determines the best image based upon each users browser, screen size and screen resolution.

From now on, you’ll always serve the most truly optimal format, at the most optimal dimensions across a fast global CDN. It is the complete image service that your Magento website needs.

 

Improve your SEO, without lifting a finger

SEO experts frequently remind us that faster websites rank higher in search results. It's really is that simple. When Google revealed in April 2010 the importance of page load time as a ranking factor, a spotlight was shone on this valuable organic search factor.

Over 50% of a typical ecommerce page is images, so by slashing image file sizes, pages become dramatically lighter. Add together all of Sirv's image optimizations and your images will load as fast or even faster than the world's leading ecommerce sites. Google loves that and will reward you for it.

 

How it works

The Sirv extension for Magento fetches the original product images from your server. All images uploaded through your Magento admin - in the past and in the future - will be synchronized to Sirv the first time they are requested. From then on, images will be processed, optimized, cached and delivered by Sirv. Just leave Sirv to do its thing.

Images will stay in sync automatically between your server and Sirv. If you have many images, after installation, you can trigger a full sync of your entire Magento image library.

 

Speed up your own server

Now all those image requests are being handled by Sirv, your server can concentrate on its primary responsibility - running Magento! Sirv frees-up precious CPU and memory resources for MySQL, PHP and other essential Magento services.

It's a win-win situation. Your own server will deliver web pages faster and your images will load considerably faster from Sirv's powerful datacenter and CDN.

 

Measure the improvement

See for yourself just how much difference the Sirv extension makes. Use the free GTMetrix web page analysis service to measure the file size and loading speed of a typical product page on your site.

Set GTMetrix to load the test from Chrome on a 3G mobile connection, to simulate a typical mobile user. Test your page with the Sirv extension enabled and disabled, then compare the difference. Magento sites typically display an improvement from 10% to 30% faster loading time.

 

A revolution in image management

Pat yourself on the back! By discovering the future in image management, you'll never again need to manually resize, optimize or batch edit your images. Just upload your original hi-res images and instantly serve them in any size or style.

This revolution frees every web developer from dull, repetitive tasks. But more, it unleashes new creative options. You suddenly have the power to update all images across your website without manual coding or editing. Change styles, add watermarks, add a holiday theme - now you can think different.

FAQ

Q. Does it support Magento 1.x?

Please download the Sirv extension for Magento 1 from Magento Connect.

Q. Can I host my other images on Sirv?

Sirv automatically makes a copy of every image uploaded to your Magento admin, including all your product images.

Other images can also be delivered from Sirv's rapid image hosting service. Images in your Magento theme are probably hard-coded, so you should upload those to your Sirv image hosting account, then update your HTML templates to point at the new image location.

Q. Can I host other file types on Sirv?

Yes. Any file can be delivered rapidly from your Sirv CDN account. JavaScript, CSS, PDF, DOC, XLS, XML... whatever files you need to serve, you can host them in your Sirv account. Reliable and easy file hosting for Magento and all other types of websites and apps.

Q. What's the WebP image format?

WebP is an alternative to JPEG and PNG images, created by Google. Designed to help websites load faster, WebP images are typically 30-70% smaller than an equivalent JPEG/PNG. Chrome and Opera browsers support WebP, so Sirv automatically delivers your images in WebP format to those browsers, helping your pages load even faster (regardless of the original format). Neat, hey?

Q. What’s HTTP/2 multiplexing?

Multiplexing downloads many images in a single HTTP request instead of one request per image. By reducing the number of requests backwards and forwards, it saves considerable time, especially for ecommerce sites with many product images. Sirv automatically uses HTTP/2 multiplexing and serves images over HTTPS by default. You don’t need to lift a finger.

Q. Can I use one Sirv account for multiple Magento sites?

Yes. Your Sirv account supports unlimited websites. Connect any number of Magento or other websites to a single Sirv account. Statistics are aggregated per account, so if you want separate usage stats for a particular site, that site should have its own Sirv account.

Q. Will my images be listed in Google Images?

Yes, your images will continue to be listed as normal. In fact, they are more likely to be listed if you use Sirv. For 3 reasons. Firstly, they load faster, which is a very important ranking factor. Secondly, they are better optimized - not poorer quality but typically higher quality in a more optimal image format (WebP). Finally, when you upload images, you have control over the image file names, which is a very important ranking factor in Google Images.

Q. Can my images be watermarked?

Sirv can automatically apply any watermark to your images. It supports up to 4 watermarks per image, with an unlimited variety of options. Choose either a text or an image watermark (such as a PNG logo) and set the location, size, opacity and effects. It’s all done by creating what we call a profile in your Sirv account at https://my.sirv.com.
