ANALYZE button

Since 1.4 release you can see added Analyze button in Page Speed module configuration.

It allows for testing Magento 2 page speed score right from the backend.

A new way for image optimization

We updated our module to help you reduce your page speed load times. One of the proven ways is optimizing images.

Basically, there are multiple image size optimization ways included in the M2 Page Speed module. You can read about in the article or on the module page.

In the new release, we added a new additional improvement. Cron jobs will optimize your images automatically once in a week. It saves time because you don't need to do it manually.  

Optimized images improve the speed of loading pictures. It results in reduced page speed load times and consequently in positive user experience at your store.

"Filename/limit filter" settings

We added the filename filter argument and limit filter argument to ‘images: resize’ console command. It means you can execute a command with the limit and filter options by filename.

That way you optimize only the images you need on the homepage, for instance. No need to wait a day or two.
