    Hi @ximooo,

    While Smush free helps with image optimization, it doesn’t resize the images to fit their HTML holders, which is the issue with the reports on your site.

    For example, on your TALLER DE MANTRAS section the image loaded is 467×293 while the HTML holder is 295×185 which means that the image is bigger than it needs to be, which increases the overall page size and Google doesn’t like that.

    This is something that you should discuss with your theme devs and ask them to change the thumbnail size used for those reported images so that it uses thumbnail that fits the HTML holder.

    If the theme contend width is properly defined you can also try out Smush Pro as it comes with image resizing via CDN that can help in these cases.
