  • Ability to set the maximum width and maximum height

  • Images that are previously JPG will be reprocessed to have the defined JPG quality
  • Only will convert images – it will leave other files alone, such as PDFs, MP3s, and other files.

    I think there should be an option to disallow compression of certain filetypes, such as .gif – that way rather than deactivating the plugin, you can upload a gif file without loosing the frames due to compression.

      I believed all GIFs should be ran through this, as the majority of GIFs are static gifs, rather than animated GIFs. However, we do have a temporary disable option under Media -> Image Compressor for temporarily disabling the compressor.

    I installed WordPress Image Compressor. It works smoothly with all type of photographs. But there’s one problem. As soon as the plugin is acitivated, the upload of pdf-files is not working any more. It is possible to upload pdf-files, but they are “converted” into jpg-files and the respective files do obviously become useless.

    this plugin will convert all images to max width that I set?

    Eve if they are smaller than that width?

    I just want to convert images higher than the max width I set, is this possible?
