When you add images to your site, the images will be made up of different sizes and weight. These images can make the pages and post heavy, thus slowing down the loading of your site in the browser. That can also affect the performance, speed and to some degree it can also affect your sites SEO. One action you can take to improve this is by optimizing the images. Most of you won’t do this because it becomes tedious and a nuisance. That is why a good image optimizing plugin can help you. There are also services that allow you to optimize your images before you upload them to your site.

Note: Optimizing images reduces the size and weight and improves the loading speed.

The following list of plugins will help you optimize the image sizes and weight.

  • EWWW Image Optimizer
  • Compress JPEG & PNG images
  • WP Smush – Image Optimization
  • Imsanity
  • Regenerate Thumbnails
  • Resmushit Image Optimizer
  • Robin Image Optimizer

Information: Always remember to try and not have too many plugins added to your website or blog. The more plugins you add the more request and processing resources it requires to use from your server!!!
