Should I Smush the original image?

Hi there! I'm not clear on the implications of selecting the Smush Original Image option. Can you explain? Thanks!

    Hi Shannon

    I hope you are having a wonderful day.

    When you upload an image through the media uploader, WordPress creates multiple sizes for that image as defined in the configuration. So you usually have more than 1 versions of the picture you upload. By default, WP Smush Pro process all versions except the original uploaded one.

    As in most of the places, you need to use the "resized versions" of your uploaded image like Thumbnail image, featured image etc, you mainly need to smush those versions. But if you think, your site shows the original uploaded files in most of the places, then it's very important for you that you enable the option "Smush Original Image".

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
