Resize, optimize, optimise and compress all of your images with the incredibly powerful and 100% free WordPress image smusher, brought to you by the superteam at WPMU DEV!
(You say optimise I say optimize…let’s call the whole thing off 😉 )
Award Winning Image Optimizer
Smush has been benchmarked and tested number one for speed and quality and is the award-winning, back-to-back proven crowd favorite image optimization plugin for WordPress.
Now with image resizing! Set a max width and height and large images will scale down as they are being compressed.
Our servers do all the heavy lifting. Strip hidden bulky information from your images and reduce file size without losing quality.
Large image files may be slowing down your site without you even knowing it. WP Smush uses WPMU DEV’s super servers to quickly smush every single one of your images and cuts all the unnecessary data without slowing down your site.
Smush meticulously scans every image you upload – or have already added to your site – cuts all the unnecessary data and scales it for you before adding it to your media library.
Compress any Image in any Directory
In addition to smushing your media uploads, you may want to compress the images stored in other folders. Smush now lets you compress any image in any directory so that you can optimize all the images on your site – including NextGEN images, images stored on Amazon S3 using WP Offload S3 and images in EVERY WordPress plugin and theme package!
Compatible with Your Favorite Media Library Plugins
No matter what plugins you use to better manage your WordPress media library, Smush has you covered. Check out just a few of the plugins Smush is working with to help make your site faster and more efficient:
- WP All Import
- WP Offload S3
- WP Media Folder
- WP Retina 2x
- NextGen Gallery
- WPML Media Translation Add-on
- And many, many, more!
What about Multisite? Smush can be used to optimize all the images across your entire network! Use global settings or configure each site individually.
Smush is super easy to use – no confusing compression software settings! Smush images in your library one at a time or bulk smush up to 50 images at a time. Plus, configure auto-smush to asyncronously scale and compress some or all of your images as they are being uploaded – it’s incredibly fast.
The faster your site loads, the more Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines will like it. Your site will load faster and rank higher.
- Hummingbird – Page Speed Optimization
- Hustle – Pop-ups, Slide-ins and Email Opt-ins
- SmartCrawl – SEO Optimizer
- Defender – Security, Monitoring, and Hack Protection
Smush can take care of all your image compression needs, for free!
However, if you’d like Super Smush lossy compression, the ability to optimize images up to 32MB, bulk smush optimization for all your images in just one-click, auto-convert PNG to JPEG, the ability to Smush and make a copy of your full-sized images (to restore them at any point) you can always take the next step with WP Smush Pro.
Smush does not interact with end users on your website. The only input option Smush has is to a newsletter subscription for site admins only.
Smush uses a third-party email service (Drip) to send informational emails ( Opt-in) to the site administrator. The administrator’s email address is sent to Drip and a cookie is set by the service. Only administrator information is collected by Drip.
Smush sends images to the WPMU DEV servers to optimize them for web use. This includes the transfer of EXIF data. The EXIF data will either be stripped or returned as it is. It is not stored on the WPMU DEV servers.
