Helix blog image size too heavy

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
we're uploading a, let's say.. 30 kb optimized image (something like 1180x600, as an example), when we upload it to the helix blog tab,. the thumbnail that generates (lets say something like 350x250) is heavier than our optimized image (around 60 or 70kb, against the 30 kb original optimized image) is there any way to optimize this? where can i found the code of this function to modify it?

Hi there,

Thanks for your query. Please go to the Template manager > blog option > change the image size for your thumbnail and details image.

-Thanks
the problem is the size in Kb (kilobytes) not the resolutions of the image. The image size in KB are too heavy. The home page is 6 MB and that is only in images.

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply. Helix blog option resizes only the thumbnail image with blog option enabled sizes. If you upload a 6MB size image, then it will not resize the blog item details page. Because of that, details page will display the original image.

-Thanks
Sorry Toufiq, you're not understanding me.. let me explain:

1. We've uploaded images optimized by us with a "weight" that goes from 30 to 60kb with a dimension of 1200x675 px

2. When we put this optimized images in the featured image in the "helix blog" tab on the article, the images (that weight between 30kb and 60 kb with 1200x675px are resized to the thumbnail, medium and large with a lower resolution size, but weighting more than 3 or 4 times the original weight (30 to 60 kb x 4 =120 to 180 kb)

3. The image we upload it's not 6MB. The homepage total weight turns to be 6 mb because of the images weight going 3 or 4 time its original weight, as I said before.

4. What we need to know is where to find the codes to change the optimization part of the images, so we can lower the percentage of quality in its resizing.

5. this way, by changing this percentage, it will optimize the Heliz blog images in the right way, and when we upload an image that has a low weight, it will at least mantain its weight or reduce it, and not increasing it 3 or 4 times its weight like it does now.

Hope you understand me now. Regards

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply. Please check the screenshot. Change the Crop Quality 100 to 50

Hi toufiq, that is what we are looking for.. but we are using newskit template and we can't find the crop quality in the newskit template helix blog options. We've changed it in helix ultimate from 100 to 40, but it didn't work (we are using newskit template)

Hi there, Newskit doesn't have this feature. Cause of that, Newskit made by Helix3. Thanks

Thank you very much Toufiq.- By modifying these files, we've been able to reduce the image weight in Newskit Template in aproximately 90%!!! Problem Solved.
