    Hi,

    Most of the free versions are for testing only and not enough to use on a live website due to the limitations.
    I’ve been using Robin image optimizer which is completely free and does a good job with compression.

    Now I know what needs to be done with my images. It’s really hard to upload high quality photos. Good thing there are these plugins I can use. I will start optimizing my images now. Thank you for this Astra

    I’ve been using WP Compress for my images and I am forced to upgrade to premium version due to limitations in the numbers of compression in its free version. Good thing you provided many other options. I’ll check every items and make a choice. Great work Astra!

    I didn’t know there are different types of image compression. Thanks for explaining this. I thought this is just a listing of plugins but you impressed me by providing more details and explanation about the subject before going into the listings. It really helps me understand more about the features of the plugins and why they are on top of the list. I am currently using the fifth on your list and I understand better now how to use it. Thanks Astra

    Now I am really convinced that I need to convert my images to WebP to speed-up my website. That would also look good to my website and I can upload more of my beautiful pictures. Thanks for posting this listing.

    I agree with you. Flexibility in the levels of compression is the one I look for in an image compression plugin. the top 3 on your list is also the top of my choices. Thanks for this listing. Big help.

    Thanks for sharing such a great information, I really did not recognize there are different sorts of photo compression. Many thanks for explaining this. I believed this is just a listing of plugins yet you thrilled me by providing even more information and explanation concerning the topic prior to going into the listings. It truly assists me recognize a lot more about the features of the plugins and why they get on top of the list. I am currently using the GoWebP Plugin as well as I recognize much better now how to utilize it. Thanks Astra
