It used to work, but now i can't upload images
By , for WP 3.9.1

I've tried using WP 3.7.3 and WP 3.9.1 and it is impossible to upload an image correctly. Some images are created, others aren't. It is like somthing is causing the upload process to take so long that it fails.
As soon I disabled the plugin I was able to upload photos.
Enable it, and you won't be able to upload photos that can be USED or selected. Images can be find at the Uploads folder but they just cant be used don't know why.

Needs an update!

Yahoo's side of this needs to be double-checked
By , for WP 3.9.1

The plugin and all of its features worked just fine on my site: it's well-executed and lacked any of the kludginess you often see with WP plugins.

Yahoo's dithering algorithm negated the plugins usefulness to me: on bulk conversions the dithering was uneven so I had to double-check each picture and re-upload the ones that were over-dithered.

I think that if you're using the "Save for Web" feature in Photoshop - and you're using it correctly - you're more at risk of damaging your uploaded photos than seeing any page-rendering speed benefit.

Broke the gallery
By ,

It worked great for about 2 months. Then I could no longer upload images to gallery. It would take about 5 minutes per image. Deactivating this plugin solved the issue instantly.

http error after WP update
By , for WP 3.9

Used to be a delay when uploading images, this I could live with but now I just get http error. Dissabled the plugin and instant problem solved. Across three WP websites on different servers. Dissapointed :(
Hopefully dev will tweak it.
