Business Opportunity Apps and Sites have been on my mind as late. Recently, I’ve been focused on image optimization and found a few tools; sites and apps that can really help you boost your productivity by saving you time. These free sites and apps can also save you money! The best part is I doubt you have heard of any of these.
My favorite app is the TinyPNG and you will see why when you visit their website. They offer smart PNG and JPEG compression so that you can optimize your images with more precise of balance vs. quality and file size all at once. Make your website faster by optimizing your JPEG and PNG images. This plugin automatically optimizes all your images by integrating with the popular image compression services TinyJPG and TinyPNG.
How does it work?
After you upload an image to your WordPress site, each resized image is uploaded to the TinyJPG or TinyPNG service. Your image is analyzed to apply the best possible optimization. Based on the content of your image an optimal strategy is chosen. The result is sent back to your WordPress site and will replace the original image with one smaller in size. On average JPEG images are compressed by 40-60% and PNG images by 50-80% without visible loss in quality. Your website will load faster for your visitors, and you’ll save storage space and bandwidth!
Install this plugin and obtain your free API key. With a free account you can optimize roughly 100 images each month (based on a regular WordPress installation). The exact number depends on the amount of thumbnails you use. You can change which of the generated thumbnail sizes should be optimized in the Settings > Media page. If you’re a heavy user you can optimize more images for a small additional fee per image.
Optimizing all your images
You can optimize all your JPEG and PNG images at once by going to Media > Bulk Optimization. If you need to optimize those seemingly pesky animated gif files and have struggled here is an a way to reduce your gif image files in multiple ways. I have to say that I love this site and their Business Opportunity Apps. It saved me hours and the effects along with the creation navigation is super easy to use.
