I'm confused about image optimisation & size for my WordPress blog.
In the Smush FAQs there are 2 questions - see attached. In the first it says that Smush optimises 'cropped and resized images' only in Wordpress i.e. it does not compress/optimise "all" the images you upload to WP?? In the second FAQ it says that it optimises "all" WP images... Which of the statements is true?
- I want to upload 600 large images to my WP blog. Some are landscape and some portrait. If I import these via Smush, will all these images be optimised on the way into WP?
- I see there is the option to give a 'max size' in pixels for images coming into WP. Can you tell me what the best 'size' would be for portrait and landscape images please? At this stage I am not sure whether the images will end up as a 'full page' width or as a thumbnail size in the blog, so bearing this in mind, what is it best to go with (portrait/landscape)? Wordpress were unable to answer this question - they recommended I ask Smush instead.
Many thanks for your help.
