Requirements

Strapi version >= v4.11.7

Note

This plugin uses sharp provided via strapi core. All settings and options are documented in more detail in the sharp API documentation.

Installation

1. Install package

Install the package via npm install strapi-plugin-image-optimizer or yarn add strapi-plugin-image-optimizer.

2. Extend Strapi's upload plugin

To make this plugin work, you need to enter the following code to ./src/extensions/upload/strapi-server.ts. If file and folders do not exist, you need to create them. This code overrides the default image manipulation service of Strapi's upload plugin.

// ./src/extensions/upload/strapi-server.ts

import imageOptimizerService from "strapi-plugin-image-optimizer/dist/server/services/image-optimizer-service";

module.exports = (plugin) => {
  plugin.services["image-manipulation"] = imageOptimizerService;
  return plugin;
};

3. Add config options

Configure the plugin in the config/plugins.(js/ts) file of your Strapi project.

Config options

Object Config

OptionTypeDescription
additionalResolutionsnumber[]
Min: 0
Create additional resolutions for high res displays (e.g. Apples Retina Display which has a resolution of 2x). Default is [].
excludeSourceFormat[]Exclude image formats from being optimized. Default is [].
formatsOutputFormat[]Specifiy the formats images should be transformed to. Specifiying original means that the original format is kept. Default is ["original", "webp", "avif"]. Only jpeg, jpg, png/webp, avif, heif, tiff and tif will adjust quality.
includeSourceFormat[]Include image formats that should be optimized. Default is ["jpeg", "jpg", "png"].
sizes*ImageSize[](required) - Specify the sizes to which the uploaded image should be transformed.
qualitynumber
Min: 0
Max: 100

Object ImageSize

OptionTypeDescription
fitImageFitThe image fit mode if both width and height are specified. Default is cover.
heightnumber
Min: 0
The height of the output image in pixels. If only height is specified then the width is calculated with the original aspect ratio. If neither width nor height are set, the output will be the same size as the original.

export default ({ env }) => ({

  "image-optimizer": {
    enabled: true,
    config: {
      include: ["jpeg", "jpg", "png"],
      exclude: ["gif"],
      formats: ["original", "webp", "avif"],
      sizes: [
        {
          name: "xs",
          width: 300,
        },
        {
          name: "sm",
          width: 768,
        },
        {
          name: "md",
          width: 1280,
        },
        {
          name: "lg",
          width: 1920,
        },
        {
          name: "xl",
          width: 2840,
          // Won't create an image larger than the original size
          withoutEnlargement: true,
        },
        {
          // Uses original size but still transforms for formats
          name: "original",
        },
      ],
      additionalResolutions: [1.5, 3],
      quality: 70,
    },
  },
  // ...
});

If you want type safety, you can extend the configuration with our config typing.

With that approach, you will get the possibility for property IntelliSense and static string type values.

import { Config as ImageOptimizerConfig } from "strapi-plugin-image-optimizer/dist/server/models/config";

// ...
export default ({ env }) => ({
  // ...
  "image-optimizer": {
    // ...
    config: {
      // ...
    } satisfies ImageOptimizerConfig,
  },
});

Usage

When uploading an image in the media library, Image Optimizer resizes and converts the uploaded images as specified in the config.
