FAQ

How does the plugin work?

The plugin uses Squoosh.app’s compression algorithms and provides you with the ability to compress images in your WordPress media library or during the image upload process.

How are the images processed? Are they sent to an external server?

This plugin uses Squoosh.app compression scripts. The images compressed directly in your browser – means no external server used. Squoosh does all the work locally. So you should not worry about privacy.

Why should I use image compression on my website?

Image compression helps improve your website’s performance by reducing the file size of images without significantly impacting their quality. Smaller image files load faster, resulting in faster page load times and a better user experience. Additionally, compressed images consume less bandwidth, which can be beneficial for websites with limited hosting resources or mobile users with limited data plans.

Which image formats does the Squeeze plugin work with?

Currently, the Squeeze plugin supports JPG, PNG and WEBP image formats. More formats are about to be added.

Can I compress multiple images at once?

Yes, the plugin provides a bulk compression feature. This saves time and effort compared to compressing images individually.

Can I compress images NOT from the Media Library, but from custom folder?

Yes, you can compress images from any folder within your WordPress installation.

Can I customize the compression settings?

Yes, the plugin allows you to customize various compression settings according to your preferences. It supports the same options as Squoosh.app provides.

How can I test compression settings before upload my images to the media library?

You can test different options directly on Squoosh.app. For JPG images select MozJPEG encoder, for PNG images choose OxiPNG.
