Not very effective

By alexio on August 7, 2019

The 100kb limit of the free version is very limiting and mostly serves like a demo. My disappointment was that even though i had the premium version and i optimized the images, google pagespeed still had the message that my images could be smaller.

Fait le job

Pourquoi perdre du temps quand un outil peut vous en faire gagner... Si vous avez des images trop lourdes qui peuvent ralentir votre site, c'est l'outil idéal.

You should purchase this plugin!

A simple, fast and easy to use plugin that has great features to offer. I've purchased a key for the Pro version a few days ago and converted all my pictures to webP. My blog is faster than ever. If you care about your site's speed, stop what you're doing and purchase a key!

Es war einmal...

ein gutes Tool, erfunden von einem der Besten -> Sergej Müller... doch nun macht das absolut keinen Sinn mehr. Warum? Hatte man mal eine HQ Lizenz und möchte diese nicht verlängern, so versagt das Plugin anschließend seinen Dienst komplett und bedient nicht mal mehr die "freien Features".

Optimus it does what it should

Saved so much time!

By danrami on February 21, 2018

This one's a gem! This is one of the plugins that helped me learn how to optimize my websites. I use KeyCDN and found a large database of articles to help optimize my websites and realized that my images were a huge problem. Once installing this baby, it was smooth sailing from there. Easy to install, and quick to shrink my images. It made a massive difference to my speed! And without much work at all! Truly made me happy to save so much time, especially when it came to my woocommerce site! Definitely glad and worth the purchase!

Very few dependencies. I don't have to worry about if uploaded images are ideal.

Amazing plugin

By awillows78 on February 9, 2018

I can only say good things about this plugin. It's done exactly what I needed it to and was very easy to use. My website loads faster now that my images have shrunk.

Optimierung bei API Anfragen

By revendo on April 11, 2018

Guten Tag Eigentlich sind wir sehr zufrieden mit dem Plugin, allerdings werde nur Bilder optimiert, die direkt über WordPress hochgeladen werden. Wir laden oft Bilder über die WordPress API hoch, jedoch greift das Plugin dort nicht. Könnten Sie die Optimierung auch für die API aktivieren, wie es auch beim WP Smush Plugin gemacht wurde?
