Does image scale attribute result in smaller image pixel size?

Post by ann.jensen » Tue Jul 11, 2017 10:40 am

Hi,
If I apply the scale attribute to an image element and set its value to 75, will this scale the actual image so that the image in the out folder is actually a scaled down (smaller) version of the original?
I am wondering if using the scale attribute on the image element will reduce loading times because the images will have a smaller footprint.
Thanks in advance,
Ann

Hi Ann,

The scale attribute only changes the way the image is displayed. The image source file will remain unchanged.
If you want to reduce the size of the image to shorten the loading time, maybe you need to edit the image source.
