W3 Total Cache
Image minifier? (5 posts)

    Is there an image minifier that works with W3 Total Cache?

    Here's what I have in mind. When Total Cache caches a page it compares the actual image size to the presented image size (width= height=). If the sizes are not the same (or within some tolerance) then the plugin creates a resized copy of the image and uses that on the page. The original image would be untouched.

    Here is the question behind the question. And perhaps there's a better way to accomplish this. I am creating a site for my wife's business, and she needs an image-heave front page. For the moment I am considering the Hatch theme, but I may change my mind. I need to make publishing as simple as possible, so I don't want to her to have to to resize images before she uploads or upload multiple sized images (she will need large sized images at times to show off her artwork). I don't even want something that crawls the site and automatically creates different thumbnails because I don't want her to have to pick one size for front page and another for use in a post. Besides, she may choose different display sizes in the same post. So anything that can automate that process for her is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your thoughts.

    Thanks. It looks like that will work for almost everything I want to do. I've now chosen a different theme with a slider that doesn't use blog content. It looks like we'll have to manually size a handful of images for that part of the site, but smushit should work for nearly everything else. Thanks again.

    Smushit is indeed a great plugin, but it doesn't seem to work on everything. I'm running the Panoramica theme, and Smushit doesn't work for the portfolio items. So I still end up having to manually resize my images. It's not the worst thing in the world, but it seems like there might be a better way.
