Can you please help me how I can optimize my images using your plugin. I have installed both hummingbird and smush pro.

Optimize images

Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.


Optimize the following images to reduce their size by 584.8KiB (90% reduction).

    Hey Allan,

    Hope you're doing well today :slight_smile:

    Pagespeed reports have two types of reports for images.

    1. Losslessly compressing - This one's is telling that image can be optimized, that's what smushing takes care of and there are no such reports on your site.

    2. Compressing and resizing - This tells us that image is larger than its actual HTML holder.

    The second one is what's shown in your results and that's because your theme or plugin is loading images larger than it's HTML holder, for example, on your home page, below the search there are 800x600 thumbnails loaded but the actual HTML holder of those image is only 263x179 so the image is resized with CSS to fit in that holder.

    Unfortunately this is not something Smush can deal with since your theme/plugin code is written in the way to call the larger image, and even though the image is compressed Google doesn't like loading image larger than its holder, so this is something you need to check with the theme/plugin devs.

    Best regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
