If you ever checked your site at GTmetrix, you might have seen two important recommendations
- Serve scaled images means resizing as per dimension attribute.
- Optimize images means compressing the images.
Well, there are many WordPress plugins for Image optimization but I doubt anyone does proper resizing.
Therefore, I had look for other working trick.
Thanks to PageSpeed Insights! It’s free.
Please take “Backup” before proceeding.
In order to resize and compress easily, you can use Google pageSpeed Insights tool. This is a free Web Performance testing developed by Google.
Enter the URL for which you want to optimize the images
Download the Optimized images from Google PageSpeed Insights tool. It will download a ZIP file called optimized_content.zip
Extract the image folder to Desktop.
Keep eye on Month and year directory.
First, Open same directory using File manager.
Click on Upload
Just drag all images to upload. Override.
Using any CDN to serve static resources? Must purge cache to get optimized images reflected on the live site.
I hope this small tips helps.
- No need to use any plugin
- Greatly helpful for optimizing images in Bulk page by page, manually faster.
Have any question? Please feel free to ask.
Thanks & Regards,
