My images are over 15MB now, will this still work

Yes, we compress up-to 20MB original image sizes. We do however recommend resizing the images first. a 4000px image when compressed is still 4000px, so by resizing you immediately start off at the correst size, which can in some cases be 500% smaller

Reviews

Great Plugin

Thumbs to this plugin this plugin is so good and easy to use that even a novice can use this plugin we also wrote a review of this plugin

Huge time and resources saver!

I love the fact that I can even upload a huge image (from Unsplash for example) and have the plugin resize AND compress.

Update: Even at “best quality” setting, it still manages to beat TinyPNG. This really saves me A LOT of time, I no longer have to put all my images for each project through the TinyPNG webservice anymore.

Thank you for creating this awesome plugin!

Easy to use

This plugin saved me 40Mb by compressing over 1000 images, very quick and easy to use on a large number of images.

Compression and Quality

Awesome compression with no loss of quality, just install and go, all new images are automatically compressed and resized on upload if needed
