How to setup Smush Image Compression

I’ll assume you know how to install a plugin if not you can click here 🙂

Step 1

Once Smush Image Compression is Activated this will pop up on the screen.

I leave it as is with the ‘Automatically smush my images in upload’ enabled

Then I click Get Started


Step 2

1) WP Smush is located in your Media

2) Named WP Smush

But you should automatically be brought to this screen

3) Click Bulk Smash to optimize your images.


Step 3

I only have 3 images on this website but I’ve saved 11.4 Kb

WP Smush will automatically optimize any new image I upload (that’s from leaving ‘automatically smush’ enabled on Step 1)


Bonus Picture

On another website I have you can see how much of a difference WP Smush made.

2.8 MB Saved ! That saving will help make that website load faster to benefit any visitor to the website.


That’s it. A pretty fast plugin to setup!

I hope you found this article helpful ! 🙂
