Image Compression 

Turtl automatically compresses all uploaded images to ensure that your Story loads as quickly as possible for your readers. 

Your image will retain its original format where possible, but may be converted to JPEG if a small enough file size cannot be achieved any other way.

 If you find that your image appears blurry or low-quality, you can turn off our compression system by un-ticking the Optimise option.

However, please note that you when turning compression you should take care to ensure that your image is optimised for web use. Uploading images that are over 200kb can start to cause performance issues for your readers as the load time of your content will be affected.
