    Set by default, this parameter is a good compromise between beauty and speed. The medium compression is not noticeable, the image quality remains correct and its weight is lightened.
  3. Fine (Low compression)
    Choose this option if you favor beauty over speed. A low compressed image will take longer to load but will have HD quality. Use if you have a powerful server.
