Installed it on this WordPress site, and its an easy recommend
This was installed on this wordpress site, and it surprised me so much that its the first plug-in I installed that I wanted to share and recommend. I didn’t even think I needed this because I have access to other tools that optimize images. I thought I was set, with the Adobe tools, jpeg mini, and finally 10web’s built-in image optimization which I thought would do the same thing. Apparently, I was wrong. Check out my video below.
Since I’m not an affiliate, my link is a referral link which grants you an extra 100 credits a month to optimize images for free.
Since I have so many images for Shortpixel to optimize, its estimating it will take 3 hours. After that, I’m going to add the adaptive images WP plugin which is also included, then update the test results.
Update below, 86% reduction! (I also kept the option to make full backup so that I can go back to original if I ever needed to).
I got my site speed to A for a short while, until I added some other plugin for posts
To get to A, I had to remove an Instagram post plugin, a post carousel, and Youtube video. I’ve since added some stuff back in which brought it to a B as far as loading the main page.
