images not optimised

HI Guys,

I was just checking why i had images that are not optimised, so i spoke to my server wpengine, they say that the plugin is not working. Can you please have a look at this for thanks.

please see conversation.

You are now connected with a WP Engine technician.

Losslessly compressing https://1o2wil42zpog…3wllw-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/…STA-1.6-TDCI-ZETEC-S-front-1-350×205.jpg could save 36.8KiB (71% reduction).

In my google page speed insights it states this image is not compressed

But when i cannot find the image?

Help please buddy :slight_smile:

Alex Kosub

Is this image optimised do you know?

cached image is not

Alex Kosub

So I do see your using eww so I would double confirm with those settings since the CDN is just caching it however it is compressed in the file system itself

David Mcloughlin

Im not using eww i use wpsmush???

Alex Kosub

Aw correct, sorry I saw the ewww plugin but just saw now its just in your file system as inavtive

If it is compressing that image, it might be that its so large you mightneed to further manually compress it in a service like photoshop

I always check on the individual load time of these emlements on something such as

webpagetest.org

Sorry broke the url https://1o2wil42zpog…CI-ZETEC-S-front-1-350×205.jpg

Alex Kosub

So instead you would test the page its on and scroll down the water fall chart and see the time in comparison from any other images

They state it is not compressed, so is this in the cache

Alex Kosub

Ok taking a look

what page is it on?

David Mcloughlin

When i analyse the whole page it says all images need optimising, sureley this is wrong https://gtmetrix.com…ports/carloungeuk.com/6ZSduWS6

ok one moment

David Mcloughlin

Wow, it is like this for every page i think…please help

Alex Kosub

Looks like your compression plugin isnt working very well, check out when I go straight to the waterfall view http://www.webpagete…sult/160707_SR_3588/1/details/ you can see how long those images take to load compared to everything else

I would look into possibly seeing if the plugin has any settings to heavier compress, or you might need to try a different plugin for this function

David Mcloughlin

Surely its not the plugin, im paying for premium package and the just simple images arnt theyDelivered

Alex Kosub

They look to be, if you have the premium package and its still not compressing and no settings can be adjusted to heavier compress I might recommend contacting their plugin support to see why the product your paying for is not functioning as it should
