Winsite Image Optimizer

Description

Winsite Image Optimizer will compress your images for optimal file-size while keeping its quality (pretty much) intact, using the ImageOptim API (and other processing engines coming up soon).

You can also process all of your old images retroactively using our dedicated tool, found under the Media section.

Currently-implemented Image Processing Services:

Warning: This won’t work on localhost in some cases, since some services work in a way that they pull images in from your site. This is why you’ll need a public URL in order to make this work locally.
You can use a service such as ngrok to achieve that, in conjunction with this filter:

add_filter( 'wsi_siteurl_override', function( $siteurl ) {
    return 'http://ae190611.ngrok.io/path-to-wp-installation/';
} );

We’d love to recieve contributions / suggestions from you on our GitHub project.

Reviews

Changed all image file names + weird redirects

I can’t recommend this plugin as it changed lots of file names and duplicated images.

With some regex I managed to get rid of some of its damage, but with large sites this would have been a nightmare

I would say avoid this plugin to be safe, there are better plugins out there for image compressions

Needs major improvements

Although the intention of this plug-in is excellent (i.e. make ImageOptim image optimisation available within WordPress), the implementation has huge room for improvement.
For example, if you use the “Regenerate Retroactive” button (the only button it has) there’s no way to stop the process, or be selective about it, and it gives no data on what it’s achieved with each image. Let’s call it “Very very basic.”. Too basic, for my liking.
The sum total of what the user is presented with is, winsite example 1
There are no options to selectively optimise images in the Media library.
As far as I can tell, the only functionality it has is the above mentioned one-click does them all.

very bad if u unistall

installed this plugin to try it out, decided that it doesn’t help me, since i had my images already compressed, so no reduction in size, therefore i had it uninstalled. problem is all images are not reversed to the originals. yes, i kept the originals, but the paths doesn’t change to originals.

3 stars for the moment – i need some explanation

Hi there,

Well, the plugin is working in my side, but all images are nenamed with the “wsi-imageoptim-” prefix. I have no problem in the frontend actually, no images are missing. But i suspect this is the CDN which deliver the image… and in few hours, i’ll have probably a lot of 404 error status due to image not found.

Can you tell me more about this? Do you plan to let the user choose if the prefix will be added or not after the process?

Moreover, the API you are using is free… for the moment because in beta. But they will probably makes pay user to use it. Do you plan to add others API in the futur? And some automatic resize option in order to let us specify a max width and height?

Regards.
