Smush It vs. Smush It Pro

Hi there,

Installed original Smush It plugin, followed by upgrade to Smush Pro.

Just wondering whether original Smush It needs to stay installed? Or can I uninstall and leave WPMU's Pro version?

    Hey Vitiweb,

    Welcome to the WPMU DEV Community!

    WP Smush Pro is a stand alone plugin, you don't need Smush it anymore :slight_smile: Smush Pro uses our own servers for smushing, which allows for smushing larger images.

    Here are some of the additional benefits you get with Smush Pro:

    -Access better quality, higher performing WPMU DEV dedicated smushing servers
    -Smush images up to 5MB (WP is limited to 1MB)
    -No more batch smushing dropouts or timeouts (you have your own dedicated servers)
    -Works with HTTPS images (WP won’t work with HTTPS)

    and of course our 24/7/365 support too :slight_smile:

    Plus you have access to all of our premium plugins, themes, and tutorial videos.

    If there is any other functionality you're looking for, let us know, perhaps we have a plugin for it already.

    I would recommend checking out our brand new theme framework too - Upfront:

    We have several How-to guides on our blog:

    Let us know if you have any further questions!

    All the best,
