    Hello cornelius_butler

    Hope you’re doing well!

    There is no downside in Directory Smsuhing. Directory Smushing optimizes images that are located outside from /wp-content/uploads/ folder. For example: if Performance Report from Hummingbird has returned results for Image Optimization that states there are images in themes or plugins folders the Directory Smush can optimize these images.

    Let us know if you have any further questions!
