I have just optimized all images on my site using WP Smush

Hello, I have just optimized all images on my site using WP Smush Pro.
I did not use Super Smush option. However, I have noticed a rather obvious degradation in image quality, especially on mobile view. My website features photography of furniture and a lot of the product images feature woodgrain that now looks blotchy and uniform - finer details are lost. As I understand Smush is 100% loseless. Could this be attributed to Smush?

Prior to optimizing images with Smush I have also enabled a caching plugin W3 Total Cache. Maybe that has something to do with it? Just trying to figure it out... I have now disabled caching but not seeing a difference.
Thank you.

    Hi Yuri

    Hope you had a wonderful day.

    I just went to your site, but the images looked enough sharp to me. Maybe I've not seen the images before smushing. I could tell you better if I could compare an image with both "before" and "after" version. Can you please point to any specific image on which I can compare?

    Moreover, would you mind allowing Support Access so we can have a closer look at this?

    To enable support access you can follow this guide here:

    Have a nice day. Cheers!

    Hi Rupok,
    Thanks for looking into this.
    I have enabled the support.
    I have done some further testing by disabling Smush and re-uploading the original image for one of the products. The poor quality was still there. So I suspect that maybe Smush did not cause this.
    I then disabled all of the caching options in the W3 Total Cache and reloaded the mobile page, the quality immediately improved. Please see attached. I am now trying to figure out what setting might be causing this.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
