Congratulations! You just have enabled lazy-loaded, pixel-perfect, highly optimized images on your WordPress website.
Max width of images
Makes sure no image generated by TwicPics for WordPress will be larger than the given value.
Step for image resizing
You can change this value to get as close or as far from a pixel-perfect resizing as desired:
- lowering it to
5would potentially double the number of variants requested,
- lowering it to
1would be pixel-perfect all the time,
- adjusting it up to
1000would greatly reduce the number of variants but would stress the scaling algorithms of browsers more.
