How Does It Work?
After you upload an image to your WordPress site, each resized image is uploaded to the TinyJPG or TinyPNG service. Your image is analyzed to apply the best possible optimization. Based on the content of your image an optimal strategy is chosen. The result is sent back to your WordPress site and will replace the original image with one smaller in size. On average JPEG images are compressed by 40-60% and PNG images by 50-80% without visible loss in quality. Your website will load faster for your visitors, and you’ll save storage space and bandwidth!
Install this plugin and follow the instructions to set up your account. With a regular WordPress installation, you can optimize roughly 100 images each month for free. The exact total depends on the number of thumbnail sizes that are in use in your WordPress installation. You can change which of the generated thumbnail sizes should be optimized on the Settings > Compress JPEG & PNG images page. Once installed you can also switch to a paid account which removes the limits and allows you to optimize as many images as you like.
Optimizing All Your Images
You can bulk optimize your existing JPEG and PNG images all at once by going to Media > Bulk Optimization. Clicking on the big button will start optimizing all unoptimized images in your media library.
This Media Gallery Optimization App is fully compatible with WooCommerce. However, we have discovered that WooCommerce may be trying to regenerate image attachment metadata over and over again on each page visit. If you are using WooCommerce please follow the tips from the support section. This may make your WooCommerce shop even faster than it was before.
