Why is the project optimized using WebSite X5 Optimizer larger than the original one?Author: Incomedia
It may happen that a project which has been analysed and saved with WebSite X5 Optimizer may have a larger size that the original file.
This could happen for instance for projects where the same image has been used multiple times with different graphic settings. It may also happen if you have set some effects on already optimized JPG images through the internal Image Editor: in this way, in fact, the images could be saved as .PNG.
In any case, the project optimization process has correctly been carried out, even if its size has not been reduced. When working with WebSite X5, in fact, the project and preview loading as well as the data processing speed are improved, because there is no need to process the images anymore.
