Does Cloudinary optimize or 'smush' images?

    'Great that Cloudinary does all that.  Avoids having to go different places and use different programs to accomplish the goal.   Thanks.

    Great feature indeed!

    However I have a weird business requirement that the image has to be untouched, only it's metadata removed. Is there a way to stop or circumvent the smushing only in certain cases?

    When I opened the original and the optimized images side by side there were  small (hardly noticable) glitches on the shadings and objects' edges. While this isn't a great issue for me, from bussiness standpoint it seems to be one.

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    Hi Valentin,

    You can always set the JPG quality to 100 (default is 90), or use a lossless format (e.g., PNG).
