How to setup Smush Image Compression
I’ll assume you know how to install a plugin if not you can click here 🙂
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
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.
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)
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 ! 🙂
