    Only problem I’ve seen with clients is the API key takes forever to arrive. Not sure if this is an issue with their service or something else going on with client spam filters, etc.

    “The number one reason to use a plugin to compress PNG images is to speed up your site.”
    You’ve said enough Sarah.
    Anything that speeds up WordPress has to be good!

    BTW notice that you are using Jetpack comments… any chance of a post explaining why you made the change from native WordPress comments?

    Do you like this better than WP SmushIt?

    Perhaps I missed something – I tried this with uploading a new image and use it as background. However, after a reload of the page, the original, non-compressed image is transferred.
    What is supposed to happen once compressed?

    Thanks – Will

    At the moment I’m using EWWW Image Optimizer ( http://wordpress.org/plugins/ewww-image-optimizer/ ) The fact it can compress more types of images makes it more useful (and everything is done locally, so you are not depending on outside services), but it would be interesting to compare the compression savings.

    I guess off-site compressors are good for those on shared hosting, where compression tasks can result in big CPU usage spikes (that’s why some companies do not allow compression plugins to be used).

      EWWW Image Optimizer is superb. It optimizes automatically all new images of media library, has cloud optimization support, can optimize different types of images (jpg, png, gif), convert images (gif to png is great), can optimize theme images and any images in custom locations and support scheduled runs.

      After seeing the title of this post I was surprised it was not about EWWW.

    I have already installed WP Smush-it plugin.
    Next, i try to install Compress PNG for WP, when i compress via media library,
    This say that image already saved (by wp smust-it).

    I think WP smush it best.

    Personally I use EWWW Image Optimizer (https://wordpress.org/plugins/ewww-image-optimizer/ ) for most of my WordPress sites. When I just want to quickly compress a few images I usually just use a online tool to do this like http://www.giftofspeed.com/jpg-compressor/ or http://compresspng.com/ .
