👋🏼Welcome to my WP-Host blog where I am excited to share my knowledge and expertise on WordPress hosting and website construction tutorials with you. Let’s connect and learn from each other! You can reach me at email@example.com.
This article introduces how to use a Word Press image compression plug-in. This plug-in is called Compress JPEG&PNG images. It can be compressed through the server side of a tinypng online image compression provider, thereby reducing the space and bandwidth occupied by images and improving the loading speed of the website. The article is divided into three steps, namely: downloading and installing the plug-in, registering an account to obtain a KEY, and setting plug-in options. It is very simple.
Share the WordPress Tutorialsl. Today’s topic is image compression. Today, 【WP-Host/悦然wordpress建站】shares with you a WordPress image compression plug-in, as well as a tutorial for using it. The plug-in is called Compress JPEG&PNG images, and can be downloaded for free from the WordPress Plug-in Center.
You can search and download directly through the plugin center in the background of WordPress’s website, or you can download it through the link above, install and activate it after downloading.
Step 2: Register an account to obtain a KEY
Unlike many other image compression tools, Compress JPEG&PNG images is mainly compressed through the server side of a tinypng online image compression provider. Therefore, we must register its account to use it properly. Its compression effect is very good and the speed is quite fast. The free account has a monthly compression quota of 500 images, which is sufficient for ordinary enterprise website users.
After activation, enter the plug-in settings page, where a registration window appears, and you can register by directly entering the user name and email address. If you have registered before, you can also directly enter the key on the right.
After the registration is submitted, the plug-in service provider will send a master activation email to your mailbox. (It should be noted here that QQ mailbox may not be registered most of the time, you can try another mailbox)
As shown in the picture above, click the activation button in the middle.
Next, you will enter the API key management page. By default, your key is disabled. Here you need to click the button on the right and select [Enable key] to enable it. Here you can copy the API key and save it.
Next, we only need to refresh the plug-in settings page in the background of wordpress website building. If it is displayed as shown in the above picture, it means that this image compression plug-in can be used.
Step 3: Set up the plugin
For most users, the Compress JPEG & PNG images plug-in does not require additional settings, and the default is fine.
If you need to compress a lot of pictures and don’t want to pay, then you can use the following settings to save money and avoid unnecessary waste of free quota.
Select image zizes on the plug-in settings page, here we can cancel the compression of some small-sized pictures, because these pictures are generally very small, there is no need to compress, so that some free quota can be saved.
I have prepared a 4.91 megabyte image, which is directly shown in the original image above on the WordPress article editing page.
After a while, I checked this picture again, and its size became 432 KB, and the size was automatically compressed. It can be seen that the picture before compression does not affect our viewing, so the effect is really good.
If you want to compress the pictures before using the plug-in, go to [Media]-[Bulk Optimization], and then click the start button.
After using it as a whole【WP-Host/悦然wordpress建站】I feel that the image compression plug-in Compress JPEG & PNG images is still very strong, and it is worth recommending. Generally, I don’t care about it after installing and registering. Just upload the website image as usual
The only thing to note here is that after uploading pictures, it has a process of connecting to the picture compression server, which may slow down the speed of some websites, especially for users with slow server configurations.
