Why is it Important to Optimize Images?
A fast site is important primarily for visitors who may leave a website that is too slow, but also for SEO performance since search engines consider website speed as a ranking factor.
Website size is one of the most important factors that affect the website performance: images can account for 50% of your loading time.
By optimizing images you will quickly gain precious seconds and make your website faster.

WHY USE IMAGIFY TO OPTIMIZE IMAGES?
Imagify, our image compressor, can optimize all images: jpgs, pngs, pdfs and gifs (whether animated or not).
You already have lots of unoptimized images? Not a problem, you will love the Bulk Optimizer to optimize all your existing images in one click.
Imagify can directly resize your images, you won’t have to lose time anymore on resizing your images before uploading them.
There are three optimization levels available – Normal, Aggressive and Ultra.
- Normal, a lossless image compression algorithm. The image quality won’t be altered at all.
- Aggressive, a lossy image compression algorithm. Stronger compression with a tiny loss of quality most of the time this is not even noticeable at all.
- Ultra, our strongest image compression method using a lossy algorithm.
With the backup option, you can change your mind whenever you want by restoring your images to their original version or optimize them to another image compression level.
HOW ABOUT WEBP IMAGES?
For each image you optimize with the Imagify plugin, you will also get its WebP version (if you tick the option in the settings); in your Media library, this will result in the following image versions:
– full-sized optimized image,
– full-sized WebP image,
– optimized thumbnails,
– WebP thumbnails.
The optimization will also work for images included in your themes, plugins, and any images located outside of your Media Library folders via our “Custom Folders” setting.
If you want, Imagify can also display WebP images on your front-end using two methods that also provide fallback support for browsers that can’t display WebP images yet:
– rewrite rules in the .htaccess file (Apache) or nginx.conf (NGINX – must be added manually)
If you keep a backup copy of the original images, you have the possibility to create their WebP version separately (one by one or via the bulk optimization feature).
WHY IS IMAGIFY THE BEST CHOICE WHEN IT COMES TO OPTIMIZING YOUR CORE WEB VITALS?
Did you know that using our image compressor will also make Google PageSpeed Insights happy?
When it comes to the impact of images on Core Web Vitals, Google recommends serving images in next-gen formats (WebP, JPEG 2000/XR) and properly sized images. Imagify does just that!

By reducing the weight of your images (without sacrificing their quality!), you will boost your loading time and your Largest Contentful Paint performance.
