Making sure that your images are optimized is so important to keep your website fast. Images that are bulky are going to slow down your website and ultimately have a negative effect on your rankings, your bounce rate and in turn your income.

Here are the settings that I use for EWWW Image Optimizer and how to use the plugin to optimize your images.

If you have any questions please pop them in the comments below this video.

Excellent explanation of EWWW Optimizer, Lynne!

I don't have as many images as you do - only about 2,500 - but, I've been using this plugin for a long time and it works great!

One thing I do before uploading images, though, is I "pre-optimize" my images using MS Office Picture Manager's resize function - setting the images to "web-small." - after I do image crops.

Yes great point there Jim - I create my images in Canva and when I download them they are a decent size so they are already nicely optimized :)

I really must get to optimizing the rest of my images!!

Thank you for the tips for usiing EWWW IMAGE OPTIMIZER, Lynne.

On the WA blog my cover image is not displayed fully. It cuts off part of the image My settings probably need to be changed.

That could be related to the image size you have used? Have you checked when the optimal image size is for your theme?

I have the Juliet theme. To tell you the truth, I have no idea, Lynne.

Maybe just run through this training I created and you will see where you should be able to see the right image size for your theme's header:
