Joomla Optimizer, an Extension for Images and PDF Compression


Free Trial & Plans

Control Joomla Image Compression Quality


We do care about your image quality, our algorithm has 2 levels of compression for images and one for the PDF. In all optimization levels, we first check the image quality, if it's already too much compressed and it'll be visible, we automatically skip the compression process.

The "Best saving" or "Lossy" image optimization quality is the best choice for the web, you preserve all the visual quality while compressing image by up to 80%

The original quality is the best option when you want to compress yet be able to reuse and modify images layer by preserving 100% of the image data. Image can be compressed by up to 20%


Resize Your Images then run the Optimization


We offer an option to first resize your images them apply a compression on it.

How many Joomla users upload original, super large, images? Joomla is then creating some thumbnail but keeps this original image to create new size of image later. The resizing option will avoid that and offer the advantages of:

  • Saving server resources (space)
  • Avoid compression of super large images
  • Faster media manager loading time


Bulk Optimize Your Joomla Images and PDF


Run a bulk optimization of all your images and PDF from the plugin media listing. You have the option run an optimization to all existing media or make a bulk selection of some media only.


Auto Optimize Joomla Images: Background Compression


Once the plugin is installed you can launch a compression on the entire Joomla media library. The optimization process will run in background, meaning that you can work with Joomla during this time and you'll get Emailed once it's done!


Select The Server Folders to Run Image and PDF Optimization


In the global configuration you can select which folder you want to optimize. If you're using 3rd party plugins that store images or pdf in root folder you can force optimization for example. If you uncheck a folder, optimization won't be applied in this folder. Furthermore, it's possible to exclude media compression by selecting a file weight range.


Image and PDF Compression for Your Clients Using Sub-accounts


Once you subscribe a membership you have access to an unlimited sub-accounts creation. You can then define a sub-account per client with his own API key and Image and PDF compression quota.
