I want to start using Autoptimize with ShortPixel Image Optimizer, what should I do?

You can start using both Autoptimize with our plugin ShortPixel Image Optimizer easily. Just install Autoptimize on your WordPress site, go to its Settings page, select the Images tab and then activate the "Optimize Images" option:

That's all you need to get started :-)

There are a couple of things you need to take into account.

  • To prevent your images from being over-optimized, you need to set the Image Optimization quality to "Lossless" on Autoptimize's settings.
  • If you want to serve your images as WebP, we recommend you to
    • Go to Settings > ShortPixel > Advanced and disable the option "Deliver the WebP versions of the images in the front-end".
    • Go to Settings > Autoptimize > Images and enable the option "Load WebP or AVIF in supported browsers?"

Please note that there is a limit of 500 free image optimization credits that you can use on your site, but you can receive another 1,000 free one-time credits + 100 free monthly credits if you sign-up to ShortPixel from Autoptimize. Once you sign up @ ShortPixel, make sure you also associate your website to your account.
