  • Convert CMYK to RGB to save storage space and maximize compatibility.
  • Optimize and resize uploads with the WordPress mobile app.
  • Statistics page with your total savings.
  • The plugin keeps originals by default, so it’s easy to roll back the changes.
  • The plugin does not require any root or command-line access.
  • WooCommerce compatible.
  • WP Retina 2x compatible.
  • 25 MB file size limit.
  • No need to compile and install any binaries.

Getting started

Install this plugin and obtain your free API key following Pixpie WordPress plugin guide. You can optimize approximately 100 images on Free plan each month (for regular WordPress installation).
The exact result depends on the number of thumbnail sizes that are in use in your WordPress installation. For a small additional fee, you can optimize more images per month.

How does it work?

Each time you upload an image to your WordPress site, it is sent to the Pixpie Cloud. Cloud analyzes you picture using artificial intelligence algorithms and applies best possible optimization.
The result is saved in your WordPress Media Library. The original image can be automatically backed up or replaced by optimized image. Average JPEG file is compressed by 40%, PNG file by 50%, without visible loss in quality.
Your website will load faster, have a higher ranking in search engines, save bandwidth, and storage space!
As we want to make the plugin as much as possible compatible with others plugins and WP / PHP version, since plugin is activated it can provide Pixpie with the information about blog’s server address, port, PHP version, current WP version, admin email, site url, information about the errors (that could happen during compression) and already installed plugins.
This information simplifies improvement of plugin as Pixpie knows more about issues and environments where these issues have happened and how to contact the blog owner if it’s needed.

Optimizing all your images

You can compress all your JPEG and PNG images at once. To do that, go to WP Pixpie Plugin > Convert All Images.

Multisite support

You can use one API key on as many of your sites as you want. Tarif plans are based on actions with images.

error
canot get image meta: 841

On plugin page, error on a login page.

Sorry, many works before you guys.

Плагин соответствует заявленным характеристикам

Как по мне, то результат получаемый от применения данного плагина вполне приемлем. Качество изображений после обработки остается на должном уровне. Могу судить об этом, поскольку на свой сайт загружаю, в среднем, 5-6 тысяч изображений ежемесячно.

Buggy

Trying to setup an account with the service through the plugin interface consistently gives me server error white page in my WP admin. Cannot use the plugin without an account, can’t find a way to set up an account through their website either. It could be a brilliant product, but I cannot get it to work.
