    Hi Ido,

    Hope you are doing good today. :slight_smile:

    I could notice multiple things in Google page speed. WP Smush Pro doesn't have control over images loaded over external links. I could see images from, there isn't any way to smush these images, you'll to either change the link, or manually upload a compressed image in your system.

    WP Smush Pro can only smush images inside the Media Library, ie under Media > Library, your theme seems to load images from it's theme folder eg:

    You'll have to manually compress these images, and re-upload it back to your theme folder.

    However, I do see some images which are present in the Media Library, are still shown in the Google Page Insights:


    This is odd, as rest of the images in the same path appears to be smushed, could you please delete these images, form your Media Library, and re-upload the image, and check whether it works fine?

    Please do let us know how that goes, so that I could ping the developer to give a closer look. Have a nice day. :slight_smile:

    Kind Regards,
