[resolved] How do I know if Hammy is working? (4 posts)

    The question sounds silly, but if I use one of the page speed measuring tools - say webpagetest.org, the results show my images are not compressed and GTMetrix says my images are not scaled.

    Good question Bill, so if you resize your browser and then right click the image to open it up, the URL should be quite different:

    One of my blog posts:

    Small image:

    Large image:

    This was simply done by right clicking open on the same page and the same image after resizing.

    I see. I checked the images on my site http://digitl.co.nz and they are much smaller than the uploaded image, that's good. And I notice that means faster page loads.

    Can I assume the page speed results show them as uncompressed because Smushit isn't compressing the hammified images? And, supplementary question, is that do-able?

    Great. That's correct, the image resizer doesn't compress the same way smushit does, hence it won't tag it as such in pagespeed tests. That said, your mobile users are still shaving 80%+ bandwidth on mobile :)
