How does one restore the original images once they have

Hi,

How does one restore the original images once they have been smushed? I've ticked the 'Backup Original Images (Will nearly double the size of your Uploads Directory)' box but can't find the place to access them.

Thanks,

Jamie

    Hello Jamie,

    If you didn't check that option before Smushing images and you smushed orginal images then only option to restore them is to restore backup from before smushing.
    If you ticked 'Backup Original Images" before smushing then you will find your images in wp-content/uploads/ along with all images - original files have changed name like this "image-name.bak.jpg". So to restore them you would need to delete smushed images without "bak" in the name and rename original ones - remove .bak from name (of course only images with the same name, not sizes that WordPress creates).
    You need to have FTP access for that.

    kind regards,
    Kasia
