    Hi! Excellent plugin!
    I have a few full screen background images that I want to be excluded from Smush optimization and resizing. Which is the better way to achieve this?

    Hello @damen02,

    I am afraid that would not be directly possible as of now. But you can navigate to Smush-> Bulk Smush-> Automatic compression and turn that off and then upload the images.

    The uploaded images would be uncompressed once. You can turn the Automatic compression back on once you upload the images which you want it to be uncompressed.

    Should you have any doubts or need any help, feel free to write back to us here and we would be really very happy to help.

    Hi Prathamesh,

    A similar issue here.

    I tried putting my ‘Elementor popup templates’ under exceptions from settings:

    However, these exception settings don’t seem to work for me, and the images in my popups don’t appear because of lazy load:

    Can you please check my issue with the lazy loading of images in Elementor popups as well?

    Well, both options are interesting.
    I have a third one.
    My workaround was uploading my images via FTP and replacing de compressed ones. It worked.
    The only inconvenient is remember to redo it in further optimizations.
    Thanks Prathamesh and Chintanzalani!
