I am using below setting in my application to reduce file size, but no luck. Sometimes it is giving bigger than the original size.

Media.UseLegacyResizing -> value=true Media.InterpolationMode -> value=Low

What are the settings I need to modify to get file in less size?

Thanks in advance.

Sitecore's default setting for Media.Resizing.Quality is 95, i.e. 95% quality for JPEG compression. This is the most important setting —I would leave the other ones to their default value. In most cases this will actually increase file size, so I recommend lowering that to a more reasonable value in the 70-85 range (80 being the one I generally go with):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration xmlns:set="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/set/">
      <setting name="Media.Resizing.Quality" set:value="80" />

Note that this only affects images resized with query parameters, such as those generated by the Sitecore MVC helper:

@Html.Sitecore().Field("MyImage", item)

I would recommend trying Dianoga. It is very simple to install and is production ready, and supports multiple different image types (jpg, png, svg).

  • Thanks for your recommendation, But I am looking for default configuration settings . Can you help me on that.
