Hey, guys, we're excited to release a plug-in for WordPress. Make your website faster by compressing your new and existing WordPress image uploads. Features: * 500 compressions per month free. * JPEG and PNG images supported * Plugin optimizes images uploaded to the Media Library on-the-fly. All generated thumbnails are optimized too. * Intelligent lossy compression, so resulting image is visually identical to the original. Want to see how it works? Try the live demo: https://www.pixpie.co/demo.html Plugin at Wordpress Directory: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp... If you find it useful or have an idea how to improve your experience with the plugin, drop us a line support@pixpie.co

@dmitry_osipa Interested to check this out - what happens if you have a long established site and therefore have a lot of images on the free account does it only optimise images going forward or can you configure it for past images using the WordPress plugin? Thanks

@krishnade by default, the plugin will compress only new uploads, but it can optimize all images in the media library on demand.

@dmitry_osipa Thanks - and will it therefore just tell you how many images you have if you have no idea as it is a long established site but want all images optimising?

@krishnade right now the plugin doesn't tell this. We will add the estimate in future updates. Right now you can estimate how many transformations you will need. Here's how: * One image in the media library may require ~4-5 transformations because Wordpress generates ~4-5 thumbnails for each uploaded image. * Each of the thumbnails may need to be compressed. * The actual number of thumbnails depends on the theme and installed plugins. But in average, you will need not more than 5 transformations per each uploaded image. So, for example, you have 100 pictures in the WordPress. The plugin will use maximum 500 actions to compress all the images.

@lisadziuba we want to create similar plugins for other popular CMS, such as Magenta, etc. And add support for video compression at some point

@vegardwikeby @lisadziuba we'd be happy to add support for other CMS, especially if there's no competitive alternative yet.
