Broke the gallery
By ,

It worked great for about 2 months. Then I could no longer upload images to gallery. It would take about 5 minutes per image. Deactivating this plugin solved the issue instantly.

http error after WP update
By , for WP 3.9

Used to be a delay when uploading images, this I could live with but now I just get http error. Dissabled the plugin and instant problem solved. Across three WP websites on different servers. Dissapointed :(
Hopefully dev will tweak it.

Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.8.3

Just get a 'bad response' whenever processing an image.

Have spent several hours trawling forums with no joy.

Wrecked my site
By , for WP 3.8.2

Totally destroyed my site after a bulk smush- this is going to cost me dearly to get a pro to fix!

So very very unhappy - steer well clear!!!!

Great plugin!
By , for WP 3.9

I absolutely love how this strips the metadata out of photos I upload to my site. Nobody needs to see the location data but me. :)

Slowed down page request times

Page request times became so slow we had to deactivate

Deactivate Smush.it when not in use.
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is great EXCEPT it caused a long delay (10+ seconds) when loading 2 of our websites. We now deactivate Smush.it except when adding images. If we miss some images we temporarily activate Smush.it and do a bulk smush.
