Images compression

edited July 2015 in Installation
My site has a lot of large images and to improve site performance I compress them manually, I use on_after_post hook that takes path to the image and with help of the native php function does what I need:
ImageJPEG (ImageCreateFromString(file_get_contents($img)), $img, $quality);
But this method not fits anymore, give me an advice how to make compression automatic for all downloadable images?

    There currently is not an easy way to hook into FUEL that way without making change to a core file. The file you'd want to change is the fuel/modules/fuel/libraries/Fuel_assets.php file in particular the "upload" method.

    Thanks for the tip!
    I'll try to figure out.

    in file fuel/modules/fuel/libraries/Fuel_assets.php on line 390 (before return TRUE) added a condition:
    // IF is JPEG if (exif_imagetype($file['full_path']) == IMAGETYPE_JPEG) { ImageJPEG(ImageCreateFromString(file_get_contents($file['full_path'])), $file['full_path'], 85); }
    Now all JPEG's compressed and have less weight.
    Thanks for the help!
