Our service is based on a Software-As-A-Service model, in which the image optimization is offered via an API from our Cloud. We are constantly working on providing our customers with more options to use our services, in order to save them the effort to implement themselves the calls to our API and to support more advanced needs, as for example optimizing an entire images folder and monitoring changes to that folder. Our services can currently be accessed through several tools and APIs. We are also planning to add other tools as Client Libraries for Java and Ruby, App for Shopify, Plugin for Magento and a mobile app. If you need to access our service via any of these and it's not yet listed below, please contact us as we might have a development version in progress.
ShortPixel Website Optimizer offers a straightforward web interface to our API, available to any PHP website (Magento, Joomla, Drupal, custom brew, etc) and allows the optimization of the site's image folders.
This API allows you to shrink an image that is not accessible online, by uploading it to our servers via a POST HTTP call. You can call it from any programming language that allows you to send an HTTP POST request. PHP, .NET and Python examples available.
