Image optimization service by Optimole


Image optimization & resizing
Images are processed for best results with both lossless and lossy optimization and are automatically resized for any device.

Image acceleration through CDN
If you dont use a CDN, we got you covered, we will serve the images using our default CDN. You already have one, just let us know and we can integrate yours.

On-the-fly image handling
Dynamic manipulation of images and videos (resize, compress and serve via CDN on the fly).

Easy tracking & monitoring
Check how OptiMole is improving your site from day 1. Transparent optimization stats are always available.

How does it work?

This plugin connects via API to OptiMole image optimization service in order to send the images to its servers and crop, optimize and process them on-the-fly. The EXIF data will either be stripped and it is not stored on our servers. Optimole does not interact with the visitors on your website. We care about your privacy so check our terms of use.

The plugin will rewrite your image URLs to replace them with OptiMole URLs. Your origin images will be downloaded from your storage, processed by the OptiMole infrastructure and cached in the CDN. NO development needed. Simply set up your account and enjoy faster image loading.

A must for mobile first sites

Optimole is an out of the box solution to speed up any site. Just install it, and that’s it. I have tried it on a few sites now and it performs perfectly. The biggest bonus is that it serves and lazy loads next-gen images, which Google Pagespeed loves. If you want to improve your site speed, this plugin is the easiest way to do it.
