WP Smush Pro: Images were skipped due to an error.

I am receiving the following error and was wondering where I can see which files are causing the error(s). It would be ideal is Smush Pro could list the files in error. Is there a log file or similar where I can find out which images are causing the error?

Webmaster, you have 1 image that needs re-compressing!
4 image(s) were skipped due to an error.
Error posting to API: 500 Internal Server Error

Please advise,

    Hey Mtwo ,

    I hope you are having a nice day so far!

    There is no error log file or image listing that I am aware of, but when I logged in your site it was loading rather slow.

    Would you mind doing a plugin conflict test?

    Please disable all plugins except WP Smush and see if the issue persists. Also try switching to a default WordPress theme (for example TwentySixteen).

    This will show if the issue is in Smush or someplace else.

    Thank you and I wish you an awesome day ahead!
