The process for setting up Sonassi automated image optimisation is are follows:
- Email the client using the template below
- Run lossy image optimisation on UAT (and make a note of how long the script took to run)
- Inform the client when the script has finished and ask them to review the image quality
- If they are not happy restore from backup and re run with lossless image optimisation
- Once they have confirmed they want to proceed with with lossy or lossless image optimisation send them the go live email using the template below
- Run the script on live and inform the client once completed
- Once they have confirmed they are happy set the script to run every day at 3am (check the Sonassi help article on optmise-images for details on how to do this)
- Email the client to confirm that the script has been set-up to run every day.
Thats it you are done
- Backup can be found here: /microcloud/backups_ro/domains/latest-full/

As discussed out process for turning the automated image optimisation on Sonassi is as follows:
- First we will run lossy image optimisation on UAT and ask you to review the results, if you are not happy we will restore from back up and repeat with the process using lossless image optimisation (less effective than lossy). Again if not happy we will revert to a back up
- Once we have agreed to proceed with either lossy or lossless image optimisation we will run on live and then ask you to review and confirm you are happy, again reverting back up if you are not.
- The final stage is to step the script to run once a day usually at 3am every day
Please note that the script will take some time to run for the first time (both on UAT and Live), each image has to be optimised so the time taken depends on the number of images you have on your website, typically we would expect the script to be running for several hours at least.
Please could you confirm you are happy for us to proceed?

We are now ready to setup lossy/lossless image optimisation on your live website, please confirm the following:
- We recommend not uploading any images while the script is run, incase we need to restore from backup*
- Confirm a time that works for you, we're happy to start the script any day between 7am - 11pm
- Once the script has run we will ask you to review the mage quality on live (please note we expect the script to take approx xx to run)
- Once you have confirmed that youa re happy with the image quality we will set the script run every day
*if we do and need to restore from backup any images uploaded while the script was being run will need to be uploaded again.
