If you want to sqeeze your images...

...look out for Optimus. I´ve installed the premium-version "Optimus HQ" (good deal for 29 EUR / year), with the free version you´re a little bit limited. If you don´t want to pay anything, that´s not the plugin of your choice.

It also generates webp-images and let (since today...) also re-generate webp-images for already optimized pictures. And squeezes all the rubbish out of your images.

Awesome plugin, perfect pricing model

I'm a big fan of yearly subs and don't like paying monthly which a lot of the other compression services make you do. Love the fact that there is no limit on the # of images you can compress. Also having the ability to disable compression on upload is nice and bulk compress them afterwards. I write a lot and don't like anything slowing me down. Optimus is the best compression plugin I have used to date.

Works as advertised

I tested a file which was compressed to 98.4 kB by the GIMP. I ran it through the Optimus plugin and it shrank to 82.5 kB with no visible loss in quality. I tried the same file with TinyPNG.com and obtained a 71.8 kB file, but it had a noticeable drop in quality.

I'm now trying to become a customer by buying one of the paid services, but it keeps serving an error :/ The free product does work well though, so hopefully the paid one will be just as good ... once I manage to actually pay for it.

Does awesome!

I have always been an image optimizer guru! I knew it really mattered if your images were smashed or not for your website speed. I have tried different plugins, and even some that would use my own server resources to optimize the images. The problem with that is, it cause lag for your visitors when you make a new post, upload new media, or do a bulk optimize on all your images.

Thanks to Optimus.io; I now don't have to use my server resources to optimize my images, which is really, really good! I highly suggest you give them one try, and you won't want to even bother looking for a different plugin to optimize that images on your blog :) Trust me

Optimiert völlig selbstständig hoch geladene Bilder und reduziert viele Datenbytes! Die Komprimierung ist dabei so ausgewogen, dass keine Artefakte oder andere unschöne Effekte zu sehen sind! Google wird es danken!

An awesome plugin

The plugin works great and does exactly what it's supposed to. The setup was easy and I'm really happy with it. I didn't have any conflicts with other plugins.

Highly recommended if you're looking for a plugin of that kind.

One of my standard plugins

This plugin is really convenient. Once installed and uploaded already all images are optimized


Fast image optimization
By Plugin Author, for WP 4.2.2

Excellent plugin that works right away. There are no conflicts with other plugins and the optimization happens in the background during the image upload process. The recommended image optimization plugin - optimus.io

must have
By , for WP 4.0.1

eigentlich ein must have. jedes kb zählt, gerade als gesamtes. bin sehr zufrieden. holt wirklich immer noch etwas raus.

sehr happy macht mich die pro version – als bonus webp unterstützung (chrome/android).

die jahresgebühr finde ich sehr fair. gerade weil man sie für alle projekte einsetzten kann und damit gegenfinanzieren kann.

guter support.

Super! Aber nur als Premium-Version
By ,

Optimiert automatisch, schnell und zuverlässig Bilder direkt beim Upload. Ist aber auch nur als Premium-Version mit Jahresgebühr zu gebrauchen, die Free-Version bringt eigentlich nicht viel. Trotzdem tolles Plugin.

Was fehlt ist die Bulk-Optimierung, um auch alte Bilder im Blog noch zu optimieren. Das können die Alternativen besser.

Ansonsten klares Muss, um die Performance im Blog effektiv und sehr einfach zu verbessern. Einfach aktivieren und schon erledigt das Plugin die Optimierung quasi stillschweigend im Hintergrund.
