Wordpress - Shortpixel via Autoptimizer or local images cached by Cloudflare?

Which would be better for performance?

If you optimize images locally you burn CPU but save BW
If you don’t, you save CPU and use more BW

It’s a trade-off at server side and neglectable.
Cloudflare (CF) caches images by default but you might to optimize images in sake of your clients.

I always run them through TinyJPG before uploading.

I think I’m going to set up a subdomain on my site for media tomorrow and do it that way.
