How do I compress an image without losing quality in WordPress?
- Optimole – popular plugin by the team behind ThemeIsle.
- EWWW Image Optimizer.
- Compress JPEG & PNG images – plugin by TinyPNG team mentioned above in the article.
- Imagify – plugin by the popular WP Rocket plugin team.
- ShortPixel Image Optimizer.
- WP Smush.
Which is better Smush or imagify? Despite using lossy compression, Imagify only shrank the image by ~47%. Smush finished in last place, but that’s because it uses lossless compression by default in its free version. That makes it very difficult to recommend Smush unless you pay for it, since the free compression doesn’t compete.
Which compression is best for images? The best compression ratio to retain image quality is 10:1. If you’re looking to reduce the file size of your photographs while keeping image quality, this is the maximum compression ratio you want to shoot for.
