How does it work?
After you upload an image to your WordPress site, each resized image is uploaded to the TinyJPG or TinyPNG service. Your image is analyzed to apply the best possible optimization. Based on the content of your image an optimal strategy is chosen. The result is sent back to your WordPress site and will replace the original image with one smaller in size. On average JPEG images are compressed by 40-60% and PNG images by 50-80% without visible loss in quality. Your website will load faster for your visitors, and you’ll save storage space and bandwidth!
Install this plugin and obtain your free API key from https://tinypng.com/developers. With a free account you can optimize roughly 100 images each month (based on a regular WordPress installation). The exact total depends on the number of thumbnail sizes that are in use in your WordPress installation. You can change which of the generated thumbnail sizes should be optimized in the Settings > Media page. If you’re a heavy user you can optimize more images for a small additional fee.
Optimizing all your images
You can optimize all your JPEG and PNG images at once by going to Media > Bulk Optimization. Clicking on the big button will start optimizing all unoptimized images in your media library.
The API key can optionally be configured in wp-config.php. This removes the need to set a key on each site individually in your multisite network.

- Q: How many images can I optimize for free?
A: In a default WordPress installation you can optimize around 100 images for free each month. WordPress creates different thumbnails of your images which all have to be compressed. Some plugins even add more sizes, so take a look at the Settings > Media page before you start optimization.
- Q: What happens to the optimized images when I uninstall the plugin?
A: When you remove the plugin all your optimized images will remain optimized.
- Q: I don’t recall uploading 500 photos this month but my limit is already reached. How is this number calculated?
A: When you upload an image to your website, WordPress will create different sized versions of it (see Settings > Media). The plugin will compress each of these sizes, so when you have 100 images and 5 different sizes you will do 500 compressions.
- Q: Is there a file size limit?
A: No. There are no limitations on the size of the images you want to compress.
- Q: What happens when I reach my monthly limit?
A: Everything will keep on working, but newly uploaded images will not be optimized. Of course we encourage everyone to sign up for a paid account to cover the hosting and development costs of the service.
- Q: Can I optimize all existing images in my media library?
A: Yes! After installing the plugin, go to Media > Bulk Optimization, and click on the start button to optimize all unoptimized images in your media library.
Easy to install and to use. Excellent compression without undue loss of image quality.
This was a great service and one I would have gladly paid more for than I ever actually did. Sadly, an over generous free-tier now means that you are often sat waiting for minutes while a single image is processed (if at all). If you don't ever intend to pay for use than you'll probably be happy with the service but if you are a professional developer, who doesn't mind paying, it's just not worth the hassle.
