  • Yeah, good question!

    I love the idea of… but I have an rather old Blog, full of pics and it would be great to compress those as well!

    Some ideas on that?!

    That would be great!

    Another idea would be to have optional as you upload. I’d like to smush graphics and some images, but for photos in a gallery I’d like to keep those as they are.

    Beside this, that does not work…!

    I tried the whole day now using FF 3.0.5 with plugin, IE 7.0, direct upload, and URL, the only thing I get is

    Smushed imagesImage Result size Savings % Savings
    header1.jpg Smushing…

    …and then, nothing goes!

    I tried to post in the related forum, as it seems, this does not work as well.

    A big gnaahhh! for that 🙁

    …still doesn´t work for me.
    Any hints?!

    It’s not working for me now and didn’t all day yesterday either. It has to be a problem on their end. Wish they’d get it fixed asap tho!

    Hi guys,

    There seems to be a problem with the main service right now — I’ve seen reports around the web to that effect. I’ll take a look and see what’s going on.

    Re: old images, that’s a great suggestion. Watch for an update in the next few days hopefully.

    @shaneholden — what is it you’d like to keep in your gallery photos. is lossless, so you’re not losing any quality. It just re-organizes the bits to be more efficient. AFAIK it isn’t even stripping meta data at the moment.

    Alex is definitely having some issues. Even their demo URLs (e.g. aren’t working.


    Thanks for the reply and can’t wait for the update!

    Regarding my suggestion, I just took another look at the FAQs, and it appears that I misread when I read it initially a few weeks ago. I was thinking that removed the exif data, but it doesn’t. So please just ignore me 🙂

    Thanks again for the reply!

    Hi all,

    Things are back in business (see

    @shane: if starts stripping exif info I’ll look in to making that feature optional. For now, lossless savings for all!



    New version out now, allows manual smushing of old posts.

    Would be great if you could ask it to batch-smush all pics.

    Hi Vadi,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll put it on the list…

    Out of curiosity, how many images do you have in your backlog?


    I’m unable to smush previously uploaded images. When I go into my media library and click “Smush it,” I get an error message that reads:

    C:Inetpubvhostsnowutah.comhttpdocswp-contentuploads2009�9webBYUthumb.jpg must be within the content directory (C:Inetpubvhostsnowutah.comhttpdocs/wp-content)

    Can you please suggest a way to fix this?
    I would really love to compress many of the images already in my library.



    Hi Thad,

    Is this only happening on images already in your media library, or does it happen on upload as well?

    What WP version are you using?


    First off, thanks for the great plugin. This is invaluable for people hosting their own home webserver.

    I believe I have the same problem as nowutah. When using the media library function I receive the following message in the column:

    C:WebRootblogwp-contentuploadsdsc00783a.jpg must be within the content directory (C:WebRootblog/wp-content)

    I have spent more time than I would like to admit trying to fix this myself, but I am no programmer. Anyway, I believe it’s just a path problem, but could not figure it out myself. When I comment out the check in wp-smushit.php to see if file is in WP_CONTENT_DIR it places a temp file ‘___16.tmp’ for example in the following directory:


    The file ‘___16.tmp’ is the reduced image. It just never gets put in the correct directory or renamed. But this only happens when the path check is commented out.

    Any help you can give me is appreciated.

    I am running the following setup on a home box:
    OS: Windows XP
    Webserver: Apache 2.2
    PHP: 5.2.2
    Wordpress: 2.8.4
