Control at your fingertips
Easily accessible from your WordPress admin menu, the WP QuickDraw Dashboard shows the percentage of all your Media Library JPG, PNG and GIF images that are enabled to benefit from WP QuickDraw acceleration and features. Dashboard updates happen automatically during processing and whenever unprocessed images are detected in your Media Library. Since image sizes under 768px wide or over your WPQuickDraw tier limit (Basic, Pro4K or Pro8K) will not be processed the gauges may never ultimately show 100%. However, even unprocessed images (or those waiting to be processed) will always appear on your webpages normally without WP QuickDraw features. SPECIAL NOTE: If you are using a caching plugin please clear your cache any time you change and save WP QuickDraw settings.
WP QuickDraw Features
WP QuickDraw Features are turned ON by default. After installation and activation (and use of an API License Key if you have WP QuickDraw Pro) this setting in the ON position allows processing to run autonomously in the background whenever the HifiPix API can be reached through an internet connection and whenever new files are detected in the Media Library to make sure your files are ready for WP QuickDraw rendering. But it is also a simple way to turn off all WP QuickDraw features for your entire website without deactivating the plugin itself. Note that if you run out of your tier processing bandwidth for the month then WP QuickDraw will alert you each time it automatically tries to process your Media Library so turning WP QuickDraw Features OFF will avoid these alerts until your bandwidth is replenished. But make sure you turn it back on at that point or your newly uploaded images won’t show with WP QuickDraw features!
Of course, turning OFF the WP QuickDraw Features setting will also turn OFF all the individual features below. However, when you turn the setting back on all your individual features will return to their previous settings.
WP QuickDraw Lazy Loading is turned ON by default. This feature detects which images are off-screen from a user’s device and only loads a low quality initial image into those off-screen locations until and unless scrolling triggers WP QuickDraw to continue loading higher quality.
NOTE: To avoid a conflict WP QuickDraw should be (and may be automatically) disabled until you disable similar lazy loading features implemented by another plugin.
ClearView Rendering – Available with WP QuickDraw Pro
ClearView Rendering is turned ON by default. Images will appear as if they are immediately of very high quality but emerging from the background, resulting in a far more natural progressive rendering.
Render PNG images as pPNG – Available with WP QuickDraw Pro
All PNG images are rendered in the lossless HifiPix pPNG format for far faster visual rendering than the standard PNG format. This setting is turned ON by default.
TrueZoom – Available with WP QuickDraw Pro
WP QuickDraw TrueZoom’s default is ON and senses whenever a user requests higher detail, either by standard pinch-zoom gestures, by standard keyboard/mouse commands or even by rotating a device for a larger image display, and then delivers that additional detail if available from your original image.
