Support » Plugin: Compress JPEG & PNG images » helpful support!

  • Easy to use, effective plug-in with good customizability options. I had been trying to improve my site’s google PageSpeed score by compressing images and emailed support after noticing that Google recommended I compress an image that I had already compressed with this plug-in (oddly the ‘optimized image’ google provided in the zip folder was larger than the version on my site…) I got a prompt, helpful, and friendly response from support:

    “Thanks for writing and thank you for your feedback. Google recently changed their page speed tool to suggest aggressive image optimisations.

    Although of course it is possible to compress images more aggressively than what TinyPNG and TinyJPG do, the quality tends to suffer. Our image optimisation is intended to automatically determine an optimal balance between quality and size.

    We do plan to look at our JPEG compression algorithms this year, to see if we can tune the optimisation to return smaller images in cases where it doesn’t harm the output quality.”

    Thanks for the great plug-in and quality support! I hope if the WebP format ends up being compatible with more browsers (safari iOS) that webp will be an option for future versions.
