[WP Smush Pro] Plugin Smush Pro is not working as promised

Smush plugin Pro is not working at all. It reduces the image size almost nothing. Example: original file is 524 kb, the reduced in Media library is 510 kb. And the same is for other photos.

    Hello Vedavi

    I'm sorry to hear that but thank you for the feedback.

    The WP Smush Pro by default optimizes images with loseless compression, which means that it's stripping only "visually irrelevant" data from images. Savings might not be that big in that case.

    However, there's some configuration options that can improve that a lot. For example, turning on "super-smush" images can increase savings significantly - it's a lossy compression but in most cases the quality decrease is not noticeable.

    There are also resizing option that can bring a lot of savings.

    It's also worth remembering that the savings (in case of super-smushing) depend a lot on the image itself. Image of the same dimensions (width/height) can be compressed much more than another image of the same dimensions - due to its content.

    In case you wanted to give it another try, please feel free to let us know and we'll check the site and Smush settings and advice you on how to achieve best results with Smush.

    Kind regards,
    Adam
