ShortPixel Image Optimizer

We prefer Imsanity free plugin. But only because it never costs anything. And is local-server compression instead of a remote API.

ShortPixel Image Optimizer is a good plugin, we’ve tested it and written about it before. But in this case, we recommend Imsanity plugin as a substitute. Many images in your database are oversized (4000x4000px). No image needs to be more that 2000x2000px. Insanity is free and will retroactively resize your media library. It also is lighter weight.

PagePipe Site Tuning Services for Speed

Instead of band-aid approaches, we drill down to the root cause of your slow site. This is origin optimization. Also known as site tuning. To do this, we analyze site components:

  • Hosting
  • Theme
  • Plugins
  • Scripts and third-party services.
  • Images and media library.
  • We minimize globally loading plugin effects.
