Humming bird plug in not matching up with Smush

I added the hummingbird plug in and it said my image rating was 22/100 but I used super Smush on my images?

    Hi there, and welcome to WPMU DEV!

    Smush does a great job at compressing images, but it is unable to control they way you have embedded them in your posts or pages. When the speed test says "Compressing and resizing" it means that you've got large dimension images scaled down on your site. This is what the "How to improve" section in Hummingbird instructs how to fix it:

    If any images in the list above recommend “Compressing and resizing”, that means their dimensions are scaled down in your content compared to the actual file dimensions. You can crop or scale those images using the WordPress image editor to match the embedded size in your content.

Thank NAME, for their help.
