Added Bulk WordPress Image Smushing Option

Some time in the past I shared about Wp plugin which is one essential WordPress plugin to optimize (compress) the size of uploaded images on WordPress. Though the only feature which I ever missed in this plugin is bulk smushing and smushing old images. Earlier this plugin use to compress images which is uploaded after installing the plugin and you can smush old images one by one.

Though with latest updated version of this plugin you can smush (Compress) old uploaded images. This is going to be very useful for those who are using lots of images in the post and especially if images are making their post to load slow.  You can find bulk smush it option under Media > Bulk


Though I have not used this feature yet on ShoutMeLoud for now, as you can see from the above screenshot that it will take almost 7 hours to compress all old images and it’s not a wise idea to slow down the server on traffic day. So I will be using this feature on some less traffic day.

Though if you have a new blog or your server is powerful, you can use this feature and speed up your WordPress blog. You can search for to install this plugin or download it from here.

I also suggest you to read following posts:

    Thanks for sharing such a wonderful post Harsh. My only question though, will Bulk Smushing previous images delete the basic properties of the image too?? Like Name, Alt Text, Description etc..

      No it won’t remove any such information. IT will just compress the images by using optimization techniques specific to image format to remove unnecessary bytes from image files
