How To Optimize WordPress Images Using ShortPixel : DomainRacer

If you want your blog to be a success, you need a website that loads fast. A quick-loading blog has happier visitors and it also helps you rank higher on Google.

How ShortPixel WordPress Plugin Helps You Optimize Your Images:

ShortPixel is a popular WordPress image compression plugin.

Step 1: Install and activate the ShortPixel plugin

To get started, install and activate the free ShortPixel plugin just like any other plugin from wordpress dashboard

Step 2: Request your ShortPixel API key:

Next, go to Settings → ShortPixel.
Enter your email in the Request an API Key box and click Request Key:
Once you do that, the page should reload and ShortPixel will automatically add your API key in the plugin’s settings:

You’ll also get an email with your API key, in case you need to use it on multiple sites. You can also register and create an account manually to get free API Key for ShortPixel.

Once you add your API key, you should configure a few settings before you start using the plugin.

First, it’s important to choose your Compression type. This lets you tell ShortPixel how aggressively you want it to compress your images. Most of the time, you can use the default Lossy setting.

Also include thumbnails:
Tells the plugin whether it should compress image thumbnails as well. This will use up your image quota faster (more on image quotas later). If possible, I recommend that you leave this setting enabled. But if you want to save money, you can consider disabling it.

Image backup:
When you check this box, the plugin will save the original, uncompressed image, as well as the optimized version. I recommend that you leave this setting enabled too, unless you have limited storage space at your host

Remove the EXIF tag of the image:
When checked, the plugin will remove behind-the-scenes metadata from the image. I recommend that you leave this setting turned on.

Resize large images:
This setting lets you automatically resize the actual dimensions of the images that you upload. I recommend that you set it to at least 25% larger than the maximum image width displayed by your theme

ShortPixel Advanced Settings:

If you want to take advantage of some of ShortPixel’s more advanced features, you can go to the Advanced tab.
you can set up options to do things like:

Convert PNG images to JPEG
Use WebP images
Optimize Retina images
Automatically exclude certain images from being optimized

Once you finish configuring the plugin, ShortPixel will automatically start optimizing any new images that you upload to your media library.

If you want to bulk optimize older images on your site, you can go to Media → Bulk ShortPixel.

Then, click the Start Optimizing button to start compressing all the old images on your site:

You can also manually optimize individual images by going to your regular WordPress media library:
