EWW IS RIGHT!!! It's terrible!!!!

This does the exact opposite of a plugin which is to save you time!!! i cant believe i fell for the hype. this plugin is trash. Not only does it not operate as “Easy” as these reviews suggest but its filled with bugs. On top of that I paid for credits which it used an exorbant amount and i don’t have no idea where the “optimized” pics went. So I go track them down. I read over multiple people with the same issue and its never a single answer that addresses these issues. No its not java, yes I went and changed it to list view which shows a fraction of the pictures but not the optimized images I need only larger files that are still well over 2-300kbs when I see the same images optimized much lower but saved God knows where. Then I find them, worst of all this garbage plugin has saved all the “optimized” media Im looking for to my public website without warning under BS titles that have no use to me and are not easily located on wordpress only through backtracking via the backend of eww under bulk optimized. So not only can I not find them on my wordpress backend to use for my postings but they bogged down my website with unnecessary posts of the images I need but can access. Wasted hours of my time and I finally find them posted as media but not saved in my library to use. WTF!!!!! So much time trying to find and troubleshoot this mess. When I finally did find them they are of no use to me and no where on my wordpress back end except already posted with a bs titles as media postings so I can not even edit them and make them work due to the way they are uploaded… I will be filing a chargeback and a complaint with the BBB. Thanks for nothing!!!

Excellent documentation and support. Oh, and it works great too!

Google PageSpeed likes my images now. :O)

One of the most useful, thorough, stable, up-to-date plug-ins in the WordPress r

I've been using Ewww since the 'early days." The author always keeps it up-to-date with WordPress, and has steadily added features to the point that there isn't a single new thing I need it to do for me. It maybe stupid of me to say, but this is commercial quality software, sold on a donationware basis.

This software belongs in Jetpack! It is as much a must for every WordPress site as an SEO plugin, a caching pluginn and a security plugin.

I don't make a site live without first running all the images through Ewww. You should to. And the author deserves our support. He's certainly given5us his. Bravo.

Great plugin with Great Support!

Great plugin with great support! We've used EWWW Image Optimizer for and it saved us a ton of time from our old process of manually uploading images to an external service for optimization and having to reupload all the images to our server.

Keep up the good work!

Efficient and fast

I only gave it a 5 stars rating because that's the maximum allowed. After going through several plug-ins that had a limit on the number of images I could optimize in a month, I finally found EWWW Image Optimizer.
Works like a charm, my uploaded png's are reduced by more than 60%. Absolutely fantastic idea to give users the possibility to disable the CMS from creating all sizes of an uploaded picture!

Thank you (for now). When the sun will shine again on me, I will also express my thanks in a monetary form.

Best Lossless Compress
By , for WP 4.5.2

Really amazing plugin. I install it on almost every site I run.

It works great, optimizes theme files, and even generates WebP images.

Also, the plugin author is very helpful and supportive.
