Reduce image file sizes, improve performance and boost your SEO using the free WPMU DEV WordPress Smush API.
I must say, the plugin does a very good job. Except that for a long time, I get an error when uploading media. But despite this error, is that the media are imported anyway Through the Library.
In theory this is a great plugin. But if you have an image heavy site with lots of large images, it won't help. Most images these days are much large than 1mb and, while it's true that users can downsample images locally, the point of this plugin is to make the process more streamlined especially for a WP site that has multiple 'lay' users.
I'd love to see a service that handles image compression for images with a 4-5mb file size, since this is pretty typical for images these days and that's were the bulk of image load time comes from.
Thanks for a super plugin guys. I had no idea that my page load time was being dragged down by the images.
The plugin nearly halved the time it took.
All I get is "bad response from smush.it" for every graphic on every site. Tried at least fifteen sites.
Just used for [Link removed] there was more than 10k images. Resuces capacity more than 50%.
It's works very well, thanks!!
It works but very slow, and sometimes erroneous.
Just used this plugin to Smush.it 1540 images wihout ANY trouble. Reduced the size of all images by an average of 8%.
Awesome work, thanks!
After installing this plugin, the speed of my pages increased a lot and my Yslow score and Google page speed score increased 9%.
When I smush a picture, smush.it changes the picture itself however not the permissions. So after that your picture is not been able to visible for users.
