Support » Plugin: ShortPixel Image Optimizer » How to optimises other image sizes?

  • Resolved Agnes


    My specifics are:
    – Im am using Simple Image Size to add extra image sizes to my theme’s default.
    – I have re-cropped manually some of these image sizes to better fit some pages, and want to avoid regenerating image sizes from their original version.

    When setting up Shortpixel, it says:
    The following plugins are not compatible with ShortPixel and may lead to unexpected results: Simple Image Size

    Now I can desactiavte Simeple Image Sizes while running the optimisation process, but I wonder whether Shortpixel shall be able to optimise my different image sizes? Or does it to only originales? Or only standard sizes (large, small, thumbnail)?

    Thanks for the help.

    Hey @agneslesagegmailcom – thank you for your message and for using ShortPixel! 🙂

    The message you’re seeing is because with “Simple Image Size” you can also regenerate thumbnails. And regenerating thumbnails while ShortPixel Image Optimizer is active could lead to issues.
    So if you don’t use it that plugin for regenerating images then it should be safe to ignore ShortPixel warning.

    But another approach altogether it would be to give our new ShortPixel Adaptive Images (SPAI) plugin a try. It should make the need for different thumbnail sizes obsolete.
    Here are differences between SPAI and SPIO.

    Best regards,

    That sounds fine, thanks for the detailed answer!

    (NB: the warning is a bit exagerate and almost led me to give up Shortpuixel for bein incompatible with Simple Image Sizes – may be you could liink the explanation in the “issues” link to provide details)
