Smush Image Compression and Optimization

Compress and optimize image files, improve performance and boost your SEO rank using Smush WordPress image compression and optimization.

Resize, optimize and compress all of your images with the incredibly powerful and 100% free WordPress image smusher, brought to you by the superteam at WPMU DEV!

Now with image resizing! Set a max width and height and large images will scale down as they are being compressed.

Our servers do all the heavy lifting. Strip hidden bulky information from your images and reduce file size without losing quality.

Large image files may be slowing down your site without you even knowing it. WP Smush uses WPMU DEV’s super servers to quickly smush every single one of your images and cuts all the unnecessary data without slowing down your site.

WP Smush meticulously scans every image you upload – or have already added to your site – cuts all the unnecessary data and scales it for you before adding it to your media library.

Compress any Image in any Directory

In addition to smushing your media uploads, you may want to compress the images stored in other folders. Smush now lets you compress any image in any directory so that you can optimize all the images on your site – including NextGEN images and the images in EVERY WordPress plugin and theme package!

What about Multisite? WP Smush can be used to optimize all the images across your entire network! Use global settings or configure each site individually.

WP Smush is super easy to use – no confusing compression software settings! Smush images in your library one at a time or bulk smush up to 50 images at a time. Plus, configure auto-smush to asyncronously scale and compress some or all of your images as they are being uploaded – it's incredibly fast.

The faster your site loads, the more Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines will like it. Your site will load faster and rank higher.
