How to ensure image search optimization when hosting on a content delivery network?
1
Hosting my website on a content delivery network (CDN), like I was advised to by Google's Lighthouse / Page Speed Insights results, helped optimize my images for smaller file size and quicker loading times around the globe.

However, doing so changes my image URLs to seemingly random ones on CloudFront subdomains, e.g. 
https://www.ingo-steinke.de/img/ingo-steinke-portrait-2020.jpg
becomes

Is it useful to keep the original URL but make it redirect to the CDN?
Is it useful to use a permanent personalized CloudFront subdomain?

Do I have to decide if I rather optimize for web speed performance vs. image search?
What is considered best practice now, from Google's official point of view?
