Why use Highcompress to optimize your images?

High Compress is useful because itโ€™s the only widely supported format that can store partially transparent images. The format uses compression, but the files can still be large. Use High Compress to shrink images for your apps and sites. It will use less bandwidth and load faster.

Highcompress can directly compress your images, you won’t have to lose time anymore on resizing your images before uploading them.

Three level of compression are available:

  • Normal, This mode provides lossless compression; your images will be compressed without any visible change up to 60%. Use this when quality is your priority rather than size. Note: The file size reduction will be less, compared to other modes.
  • High, This mode provides balanced compression of your images without any significant quality loss as well as less size, up to 70%. This will provide drastic savings on the initial weight, with a small reduction in image quality. Most of the time it’s not even noticeable.
  • Super, This mode will do maximum image compression. If your image size is big, we recommend you to use this mode. This will provide massive size reduction on images. Sometimes quality would be degraded a little. If you want to compress your image up to 90% and agree with some loss in quality of the image, use this mode.
    With the backup option, you can change your mind whenever you want by restoring your images to their original version or optimize them to another compression level.

Is Highcompress Free?

You can optimize for free up to 700 images using fist time API key after that you have to buy another key to continue our service.

Reviews

I choose the 5000 image plan and it tried to charge me 799.00

When you go to buy it, it tries to charge 799 dollars for the 5000 image plan which is supposed to be 12 dollars and some change per month. Needless to say my card rejected that. And now it’s probably locked because I never make purchases that big so they probably think it got hacked. So beware.

Very happy with the results

After serveral months of testing different image optimalisation plugins we found High Compress in a FB group where the plugin author was looking for beta testers. After our test drive on a photography site with over 611 large images (5000×3000 px) and a total size of 345 Mb we tried High Compress, after the two hour run of High Compress the images didn’t loose visibe quality but the total image size of the media library dropped to 137 Mb

We are very happy with high compres, the cooperation with the plugin author is superb, because he is listening to suggestions, open for ideas and listen to his customers. Truly one of a kind plugin.

Finally a reliable & cost effective image compressor.

This year we have built over 30 websites and have installed and tried multiple image compressors including the one with the panda face and the animated characters one. None have done what this plugin offered (types of compression small medium max) That is definitely a time saver for us and most importantly IT WORKS AND IT’S INCREDIBLY SIMPLE. Contact support if you can’t use it in THE US – They will help you process your API. Definitely a winner.

Good luck to this dedicated team,

And talking about Compression ratio, believe me, it’s really great. Without loosing image quality, you can easily compress to 40% size. Thank you to the guys working behind this tool!!
