The Elementor team has just announced the official launch of a new plugin to optimize the images on your WordPress sites. The new Image Optimizer allows you to compress your images and reduce their size for leaner, faster websites.
New Image Optimizer
Why optimize images? By reducing image sizes, your site visitors will enjoy faster page loading, improved responsiveness, better search engine rankings and a better browsing experience, while you benefit from better search engine rankings.
Check out the benefits:
- With its default settings, the Image Optimizer plugin effortlessly compresses and optimizes images in the background.
- There are two types of compression available: Lossless or Lossy. Elementor supports JPEG, PNG, WebP and GIF formats.
- You can set your maximum width/height and large images will be scaled down as they are optimized. The default is 1920px.
You can even optimise your entire library of existing images using bulk optimization, or individually each time you upload a new image.
Elementor offers a free Image Optimizer trial where you can experience the incredible ease of optimizing up to 100 images with a few simple clicks. Plans start at just $49.99 per year for up to 5,000 image credits with the Optimizer 5K plan.
