EWWW Image Optimizer Cloud

Reduce file sizes for images within WordPress including NextGEN, GRAND FlAGallery and more via paid cloud service.

Google Pagespeed says my images need compressing or resizing, but I already optimized all my images. What do I do?

http://ewww.io/2014/12/05/pagespeed-says-my-images-need-more-work/

Does the plugin replace existing images?

Yes, but only if the optimized version is smaller. The plugin should NEVER create a larger image.

Can I resize my images with this plugin?

No, we leave that to other plugins like Imsanity.

Can I lower the compression setting for JPGs to save more space?

The lossy JPG optimization using TinyJPG and JPEGmini will determine the ideal quality setting and save even more space. You cannot manually set the quality with this plugin.

The bulk optimizer doesn't seem to be working, what can I do?

If it doesn't seem to work at all, check for javascript problems using the developer console in Firefox or Chrome. If it is not working just on some images, you may need to increase the setting max_execution_time in your php.ini file. There are also other timeouts with Apache, and possibly other limitations of your webhost. If you've tried everything else, the last thing to look for is large PNG files. In my tests on a shared hosting setup, "large" is anything over 300 KB. You can first try decreasing the PNG optimization level in the settings. If that doesn't work, perhaps you ought to convert that PNG to JPG or set a max PNG optimization size. Screenshots are often done as PNG files, but that is a poor choice for anything with photographic elements.

I want to know more about image optimization.

That's not really a question, but since I made it up, I'll answer it. See these resources: http://developer.yahoo.com/performance/rules.html#opt_images
