Support » Plugin: Compress JPEG & PNG images » Larger files than EWWW, PageSpeed

  • I’m looking for an optimization plugin that can bring image sizes down to Google PageSpeed suggested size. “Compress JPEG & PNG images (by TinyPNG)” has tied for the worst result yet.

    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…

    Thanks for writing and thank you for your feedback. Google’s compression in the PageSpeed tool is rather aggressive, compared to other image optimisation services.

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

    Of course we are always looking to improve our compression, to see if we can tune the optimisation to return smaller images in cases where it doesn’t harm the output quality.
