Crashed My Site
By , for WP 4.1

My site, Omunchi.com, is up to date.
I have been working on lowering my load time. I have installed and use BWP Minify, WP3 Total Cache, and Cloudflare for my CDN. I installed WP Smush.It to compress my images, as recommended on many sites. Unfortunately it crashed my site repeatedly while I was trying to compress the old images. I tried moving them to my testing server, but I received errors and it didn't work. Then, I thought that I would keep Smush.It live on my site for new images, but it crashed it again.
I have removed it.
I wish it would have worked but it did not.

I am retracting a bad review as I believe that I was wrong, apologies to the developer.

Works well
By , for WP 4.0.1

I used the "bulk smush.it" option for my media library, which has 177 images. Plugin stated it would take up to 8 minutes to complete. Although it took much longer than 8 minutes (took about 30ish), it did work. Only one minor hiccup - about halfway through it seemed to stop working, so I simply went back to media library, selected the "bulk smush.it" option, and ran it again. It skipped over all the media already "smushed" and finished out the process. I would have given it 5-stars if it didn't time out during process. End result is it did work and definitely helped to improve loading speed on my website. I would recommend.

Doesn't work

Tried on 4 different sites. Continue to get 404 error for just trying to use on one image that's only 450kb.

Un gran ahorro de tiempo

Si tienes en cuenta el tiempo que tardas en tratar las imágenes, este plugin vale su peso en oro.

Don't Bother With This Slow Plugin

If you want to upload a gallery in a timely manner, don't use this plugin. I had to uninstall it to be able to upload images.

Great start!

Currently buggy for bulk-smushing existing images, but if you've got just one site or have the time, you can make it work by doing a (half?) page of images at a time. The other limitations are for any images over 1 MB, and the reliance on a remote server for the actual smushing.

Great to use as-is for new sites or small sites that you'll be adding images to.

Hopefully we see WPMU soon refine the bulk functionality and move the compression locally.

Great for image compression
By , for WP 4.0.1

This plugin has worked really well on all of my sites. Images are compressed and optimized automatically whenever uploading any images. Have not had any recent issues at all. Thanks for the great plugin.

Uno de los fundamentales
By , for WP 4.0.1

Es un plugin fundamental para mi, lo instalo en cada nueva web que creo con wordpress, permite optimizar el rendimiento de nuestros sitios al no sobrecargar de pesadas imagenes nuestro contenido.
Lo recomiendo a todo el que haga uso de imagenes por mas minima cantidad que estas sean.
