Support » Plugin: Smush Image Compression and Optimization » Larger files than EWWW, PageSpeed

  • I’m looking for an optimization plugin that can bring image sizes down to Google PageSpeed suggested size. “Smush Image Compression and Optimization” has the worst result yet, tied with Imagify.

    Furthermore, this plugin has the most nag/bloat of any that I’ve tested with.

    Testing with a 193kb jpg (700×467):

    Smush Image Compression and Optimization: 145kb (24.8%)
    Imagify: 145kb (24.8%)
    Compress JPEG & PNG images (by TinyPNG): 145kb (24.8%)
    EWWW Image Optimizer: 101kb (47.6%)
    Google PageSpeed: 69kb (64.2%)

    Still searching for a better solution…

    Hey @radgh,

    I think it’s not correct way to just test a single image and come to the conclusion, all the plugins are using different algorithms to get the maximum savings while keeping the visual quality same.

    If for some reason Smush is not optimising to maximum extent I’ll definitely look into it.

    Also, it’d be nice of you to drop us further results in case you test more images.

    Thanks, Umesh
