Works with no re-optimization
By , for WP 4.1.1

Media re-optimization not working ...?

Doesn't optimize JPG images for free?
By , for WP 4.1

It optimized the PNG photos great, but I guess you have to purchase a key to optimize JPG images. Bummer.

Installed but couldn't use
By , for WP 3.5.1

Installed but could never use it initially. That said, it may not work with your system without some major tweaks. I kept getting this error: "EWWW Image Optimizer requires jpegtran, optipng or pngout, and gifsicle. You are missing: jpegtran, optipng, gifsicle. Please install via the Settings Page. If the one-click install links don't work for you, try the Installation Instructions."

Definitely makes the install very un-user-friendly and from the looks of the forums I'm not the only one who has had this problem.

To fix the problems read the installation instructions for this plugin first.
