    Hi @gbengalex,

    Hope you’re well 🙂

    When you check your site on google page speed you will see that there are two kinds of reports for your images.

    1. Losslessly compressing – This one’s is telling that image can be optimized and that’s what smushing does.

    2. Compressing and resizing – This shows that the images are resized via HTML and/or CSS.

    The second one is what’s shown in your results and that’s because your theme is loading images larger than it’s HTML holder.
    For example on home page thumbnails next to large image under “NBA Plays of The Day” the image loaded is 400×300 while the holder is only 85×64 pixels.

    Unfortunately this is not something Smush can deal with since the theme code is written in the way to call the larger image, and even though the image is compressed google doesn’t like loading image larger than its holder, so this is something you need to check with the theme devs.
