WP Smush - Image Optimization
NOT for photography blogs (4 posts)

    This plugin overcompresses the images. This may be fine for normal blogs but if you are a photographer or other visual professional, it will seem overly pixelated. And worst of all, once it is installed, it converts ALL of your photos, and there is no way to convert them back even after you uninstall the plugin.

    Good to know. Have you found a good solution for photography sites?

    Saw this comment. My recommendation is to use Photoshop's Save for Web feature to get good quality and lower size - but as a photo blog quality is important, so you do have to sacrifice speed for quality.

    Also, I would recommend using CDN service to serve images quicker than regular hosting. Your best option.
