Did you know that over 63% of an average web page’s weight is made up entirely of images? That tells you one thing when it comes to figuring out ways to speed up your site, image optimization should probably be number one on your list. With a little work, reducing the sizes of your images can literally speed up your site by entire seconds.
Optimus Image Optimizer Features
The WordPress Optimus plugin automatically reduces the size of your images by using lossless compression when you upload your images to a page/post or the media library. This is different than lossy compression, as this way you don’t lose any quality in your images. So if you want your site to look amazing and pixel perfect, lossless compression is the way to go! It removes unnecessary metadata to achieve reduced sizes of up to 70%.
One of the best features of Optimus is that unlike other compression services/plugins you can compress an unlimited amount of images!
Another great and unique feature of Optimus is the ability to convert images to WebP format. Optimus is the very first WordPress plugin to offer WebP conversion. What is WebP? It is a new image format created by Google which is 26% smaller than PNGs and 25-34% smaller than JPEGs. You can deliver your WebP images, converted by Optimus, with the free WordPress Cache Enabler plugin.
Below are some additional features:
- JPEG and PNG compression
- Maximum File Size: 5MB
- Developer API
- Progressive JPEGs
- Lossless compression (no quality loss)
- Compatible with Multisite and WooCommerce
- Automatic optimization when you upload to a page/post or WordPress media library (this also includes thumbnails and previews)
- HTTPS connection and no data stored on Optimus servers
- Complies with Google PageSpeed Insight recommendations to fix recommendations
- Full support from the web performance team at KeyCDN
What about your existing images when you install the plugin? With Optimus, it has a bulk optimize feature in which you can compress your entire WordPress media library with a click of a button.
