Reduce file sizes for images in WordPress including NextGEN, GRAND FlAGallery and more using lossless/lossy methods and image format conversion.
Deleted most of the website images. Don't use this plugin.
miniscule savings unless you pay
What a horrible experience. It's called Ewww for a reason. I trusted the high number of downloads. Cost me time, money and embarrassment with my client. It kept hanging during the optimization. Little did I know it was deleting images.
Very bad experience on a shared hosting website. Half of all my clients images crashed and could not be recovered without recovering a back-up. Hours of work gone.
Furthermore it made the website very slow, which is odd for a website on fast servers with SSD and the latest updates.
For me a NO GO!
I installed the plugin, because google said our site needed it optimize the images. https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/
I run the test of google after the plugin said all our images were optimized, but nothing happened, the test said the same again.
No work for me.
I checked the loading time after bulk optimizing with https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ and it was on one of my sites 0 points and on another one 1 point of 100 better. Thats why I uninstalled it.
Would not install on it's own. Gave errors that several files were missing, but they were in the folder and were readable / writable.
This is not a "plug-in" if it will not easily plug into an existing site.
The plugin does not compress the images enough, if you want to have a a pagespeed score without "optimize images" you need to either do it yourself or find another plugin. This is especially true for jpg files.
Followed through on the install & config and the site had NO improvement. After initiating the bulk graphics optimization I received a note in RED after optimizing just 6 images stating the license had been exceeded. So it appears if I want this work I need to pay for it? That's fine but should have been stated clearly up front - not after all the time, configuring & effort's put in.
Now I understand removing this plugin has significant issues requiring my hosting provider's involvement!
when i click in optimze now in one image nothing happens.
