    Thank you for the heads-up on this. Actually, so far my blog seems to be loading fast but it may just be fast for those that have the latest computer packages. This will help inssure fast loading.

      If it’s already fast…this plugin will make it even faster!

    Great tip. Some pictures just get like 1% smushed and other up to 40% for me. Kudos to the developers of smush.it for that great free service 🙂

      Good thing is once you have installed it and ‘smushed’ all existing images in your media library…all future ones are automatically ‘smushed’.

    I’ve seen this plug-in once before but never gave it a try. Thanks for the reminder, Andrew, I’m going to see if this will speed up my blog any.

    • Andrew July 29, 2011 at 9:04 am #


      it should…even if it’s only half a second…it all helps.

    Hi Andrew,

    This plugin is definitely a must use for wordpress bloggers who want to reduce their image size, especially when we have many images in our posts, header, etc.

    Thanks for the video

    I will have to start using this. And maybe suggest it to a few people.Thanks for telling me about it.

    Hmm…how does this compare to the caching plugins or does it work differently. Maybe it can be used in conjuction with wp super cache for example.

    Page load times are becoming more important for ranking IMO.

    • Andrew December 14, 2011 at 12:12 pm #


      You use it along such cahcing plugins.

      SmushIt just optimizes your images.
