I'm not clear on how the Smush it process works.

Hello,

I'm not clear on how the Smush it process works. I understand that you convert the images on your server, then when the process is done, I go and download the photos to my computer, then upload them via FTP, overwriting the original files? Or is it all done automatically?

Cheers,
Nathan

    Hi Nathan,

    Welcome to wpmudev! I hope you're well today! :slight_smile:

    If you bulk Smush, you're required to fetch the files manually. You'll be notified once the files are ready to be fetched. If you smush the images one at a time, fetching is done automatically.

    You can find more information here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/wp-smush-pro/#product-usage

    Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any further questions!
    Thank you! :slight_smile:

    Regards,

    Hi Nathan,

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

    when the process is done, I go and download the photos to my computer,

    Not on your computer. They are fetched and downloaded in the following directory of your WordPress install replacing your existing image files.

    wp-conetnt/uploads/

    then upload them via FTP, overwriting the original files? Or is it all done automatically?

    They are done automatically.

    Please advise if you have more questions.

    Cheers,
