What is the best way to Bulk un-smush images?

    Hi Jordan,

    Hope you're doing well.

    Smush doesn't have option to un-smush the changes directly I'm afraid, the images are optimized and as such they have replace the original ones.
    However if you enabled option to keep your original image, then your full size image has a backup on your server.

    What you will need to do is go to your WordPress files, access wp-content/uploads/ folder and subfolders, find the backup images, those will the ones that have .bak in their name, for example image.bak.jpg .
    Remove your non .bak images, rename backup images so there's no .bak in the file name and you will have your original full size images back.

    You can now use Regenerate Thumbnails or similar plugins to create new thumbnails out of the original images.

    Best regards,
