Reduce image file sizes and improve performance using the Smush.it API within WordPress.
I've been looking for a plugin that can reduce and optimize image for web use. This plugin helps reduce images to certain percentage including those images that I have already scaled properly. Although, the plugin has issue when it comes to bulk smushing of images, I still give this one a 5-stars due to its effectiveness in terms of optimization.
Suggestion to those who have 100s of images, smush them by batch as this plugin hangs. I was having the same trouble, but managed to figure out smushing all the images completely. My 5 star rating as mentioned, is for the effectiveness when the images are already smushed.
Bulk Smushing Rating = 2 Stars (Hangs and no indicator)
Does what it's propose to do.
After installing this plugin to my blog, I got many errors to upload media.
Every time I try to upload an image from the publisher, it took me years and finally told me that there was a mistake to upload photos.
I disable all plugins and I was activating one by one and test media upload. When I turn on this plugin, problems began again.
Today, I have removed from my site and all loads for multimedia works 100%.
Thanks anyway, this plugin reduces image very well.
Maybe I'll install it later again.
Just started smushing, tried with an image and went very well, no smushing all images in bulk. Well earned 5 stars for this one
Finally, the latest version solved the Time Out issue by allowing user-set response time. on http://www.domain.com/wp-admin/options-media.php page :
How many seconds should we wait for a response from Smush.it?
Great plugin that I've been using for years. Very happy to see it being actively maintained again.
One of the easiest plugin to use. All you've to do is to click one button (bulk smush.it) and it'll smush all your existing images.
Thank you so much for this plugin. We understand you no longer have time for maintaining this. But even then, just came here to write a quick thank you for smushing so many images!
All the best with family, work and life!
Using WP 3.6 and this plugin just rattles through compressing and squishing images. There's a lot of media on my blog and it definately makes a difference in the speed
The plugin works correct, although sometimes running out of memory (known, as reported in the past). If so, read this post:
'Automatic smushing disabled' is a very known problem:
