The best choice. It just works, clean interface, optionally retains originals, everything you could want.
Upgraded to 5 stars. Now retains image color profile information. Metadata inclusion is optional. ShortPixel is the best overall image optimization solution.
Very good compared to all the others I have tried (Kraken, EWWW, Imsanity, and several more).
Pricing is excellent, interface clear and easy to use.
I especially like the feature that saves the original image in a separate folder, which using other apps, can be excluded from backups and even copied to an external destination. If your site needs to be re-built for 4K displays down the road, you won’t have to hunt down the original images. Especially useful for blogs with multiple contributors who may not have any organized means to save their uploads for future use. Nice!
So it’s the best of both worlds: keep the originals + dramatically reduced file sizes.
One IMPORTANT missing feature: Shortpixel does not provide an option to retain metadata.
That’s vital to many users that actually care about color profiles (how the image renders in various browsers), copyright information, camera information, search image optimization keywords!, and the myriad of useful information within the metadata.
Metadata retention should be the default, with a check-the-box option to strip it out. But I can live with the default to strip out metadata too. Either way, users that want it can keep it, those that don’t can make it go away.
