Gain a 15-30% speed boost by sacrificing rendering quality.
<add name="SpeedOrQuality" />to the
&speed=value to any image URL.
- 0 - Highest quality
- 1 - High quality bilinear, but with low quality pixel offset, smoothing, composing, and compositing quality.
- 2 - Low quality bilinear
- 3 - GetThumbnailImage() is used. This can produce extremely bad (but instant) results when an image has an embedded EXIF thumbnail (most cameras embed these).
Resizing is usually the least expensive part of image resizing - jpeg decoding and encoding take most of the time. This plugin can sometimes speed up resizing by 1.5-3x (or more if there is a thumbnail image and you are using &speed=3), but it probably doesn't matter much - the overall savings are likely less than 20%.
