Image Optimizer by Elementor – Compress, Resize and Optimize Images


Image Optimizer is an easy-to-use WordPress plugin that reduces image size through various compression and resizing techniques – all of which preserve the highest possible image quality. Image Optimizer supports many popular formats, including JPEG, PNG, WebP, and GIF.


Reducing the size of your website’s images with Image Optimizer ensures faster loading times, enhanced user experience, and overall boosted website performance, resulting in improved Core Web Vitals and search engine rankings. With the Image Optimizer’s exceptional capabilities and unique algorithms, you can fine tune images and reduce their file sizes with minimal or no sacrifice in quality.

This plugin requires a connection to an active Elementor account in order to identify the user and provide the user with the purchased service. This connection is triggered manually by the user via the plugin’s settings panel.
This plugin uses a 3rd party service operated by Elementor, which accepts a standard image in JPG, PNG, GIF or WEBP format and returns a web optimized image based on the selected settings. This flow is triggered by the user or automatically (based on the selected plugin settings) on compatible image upload or by manually initiating optimize process.

Image Optimizer by Elementor lets you optimize all images in your library either one at a time, or in a batch according to your preferences and settings. Easily configure the plugin to scale or compress your images on-demand, or automatically have them triggered as they are being uploaded. Or, if you have a large number of images already uploaded, the bulk optimization feature allows you to resize and/or compress your entire library of existing images in just a few clicks.


Med Image Optimizers avancerade algoritmer kan du komprimera bilder och minska deras filstorlek på den nivå som är mest meningsfull för dig. Vi erbjuder 2 typer av komprimering där bilder kommer att bearbetas, vilket ger dig den perfekta balansen mellan komprimering och kvalitet.

Lossless Compression: Lossless compression reduces image file sizes without sacrificing or diminishing the quality of your images. This type of compression reduces file sizes by removing unused or unnecessary data so that no image details are lost along the way. Hence, you are able to reduce the file size and still maintain the quality of your image.

Lossy Compression: Lossy compression performs maximum compression resulting in lightweight images and smaller file sizes. It reduces image size by removing image data that is generally invisible to the human eye and minimizes any compromise in image quality.

Convert to WebP: Convert images to the slimmer WebP format for even better optimization with a 25-30% savings over JPEG and PNG. Most browsers support WebP, however if they don’t, you can have fallback versions of the image available in the same format as the original image.

By tailoring compression to the level you need, your visitors will enjoy faster load times, improved responsiveness, and a seamless browsing experience. Our approach also enables your website to rank higher in search results. Since a search engine’s ranking is heavily influenced by speed, user experience, and Core Web Vitals, Image Optimizer by Elementor is an invaluable tool for any website, especially one that’s abundant with images.

Nej tillägget Image Optimizer sparar både originalversionen och den komprimerade versionen av dina bilder. Du kan alltid återställa originalbilden om det behövs.

Varför ska jag överväga att konvertera mina bilder till WebP?

WebP is a modern image format developed by Google intended as a replacement for JPEG, PNG, and GIF file formats that provides superior lossless and lossy compression. It can reduce the file size of images significantly more than other formats, leading to faster website load times. Most web browsers today support this format, but if they don’t – the original backup will be used.

I have tested this plugin on several sites, and the results are great!All the images I uploaded to the site went through the optimizer and the overall file size after the optimization is amazing! Easy to use and work with & great UI.The Webp option cuts the file size a lot without damaging the image.

I like the fact that Elementor added this option. But i have 2 issues with this that really don’t sit well moving forward. Spammy behavior, prompting install to compress. Very annoying. The pricing model compared to established plugins that offer the same features (and maybe better). Shortpixel and Imagify offers a $9.99 unlimited credit plan. Why in the world would you want to even look at the Elementor version?? Come on guys, why would you do that and not offer a similar unlimited plan??!! So, it’s a pass on this. Would like to love it, but at the moment the pricing model doesn’t sit well with me.It’s like the EV range anxiety, with additional credits being taken for WP sizes you don’t really have a ’set it and forget it option now with the Elementor image resize plugin’.
