Best Support Ever!
By , for WP 4.4.2

Well in the beginning i was a bit curius about the plugin but installed it after reading the comments.

Everything moved fine except the png out installation. I was ready to remove the plugin but i decided to report it to support. I didnt expect much of support from a free plugin but....... nosilver4u is an amasing guy! He reponded so fast to my questions and in so proffecional manner, that even paid support on other companies deosnt provide.

He actually solved the problem and guided me.

nosilver4u thanks a lot for support and for this great plugin!

Best Regards

Quick fixed issue

Outstanding Product! -saved me $250
By , for WP 4.4.2

An OUTSTANDING PRODUCT that saved me $250.

I had over 500 screenshots in .png format for my directory website. I was quoted $500 to have them resized & converted to .jpg.

This plugin is FREE -not 'fremium'(where they trick you into paying for full functionality)

This plugin installed easily and quickly converted all my images. Remarkably, it reduced my .png files by over 70% just by compressing the 1.35 Megs down to 362 Kbs with no visible loss of quality -and that's keeping it as a .png! That's keeping it as a .png!

I looked at all my other .png pics and they were reduced to super small files sizes

The files were so small I didn't even have to compress them to .jpgs -but I could have easily with this program!

It even optimizes all the other sizes that WordPress creates.

Thank you so much for an awesome product being completely free and unlimited to use! (and yes, I did donate).

Whala whala!

My go-to optimizer for years
By , for WP 4.4.2

Stable and reliable, this has been my go-to optimizer for years. I've used it on dozens of sites, both my own and for clients, and I've never had a problem. (Well, once is was odd, but support was amazing and solved the problem immediately.)

Thank you for this plugin. It does what it says without any hidden agendas lurking in the background.


The only good optimizer, that is also FREE
By , for WP 4.4.2

Is great at what it does and comes for free. Regular updates and new features from an author that cares for its plugins.

By Far The Best Image Optimizer
By , for WP 4.4.2

I love this plugin! Ever since I started with WordPress, my theme developer recommended EWWW. There was an issue sometime back with an update and I had to remove the plugin.

I never found anything even close. I tried Smush it when it was around and it would time out all the time during upload. I also have my file sizes pretty small before upload. After a few weeks of not using this plugin I thought I would try it again and the developer fixed the issue. I am constantly on the search for speed and this has been a lifesaver and timesaver. I did not realize how far above the other Image Optimizers EWWW was until I had to switch. After a recent upgrade to the plugin, I screwed up my settings and the developer was on top of the problem and went over issues I had. In my opinion, this is the type of developer and plugin I feel comfortable with. They earn your trust and loyalty. I am going to dig into some of the paid services soon here when I know my head has the patience to do it. I also know there will be quick support and I will not be left hanging if in a spot! Thank you so much for this free plugin and patience. I give EWWW a 6 + star review.

It's great!

It's like WP-Smush, but without the limitations. I put it on all the WP sites that I administer.

Thanks for the detailed infos!
