Image Compression 

Turtl automatically compresses all uploaded images to ensure that your content loads as fast 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 when not using compression you should try to optimise your image for web use. Uploading images that are over 200kb can load slowly for readers.

Image Dimensions

It is important that any images uploaded fit the required dimensions of your page. For further details on dimensions, check out the following article Dimensions in Turtl
