- Embed the document as a Google document
Optimizing your WordPress website’s PDF and media files with ImageRecycle is a handy and automatic tool to save server space. Nonetheless, the process could take some time, and that is where PDF reports come in.
ImageRecycle’s PDF reports are a useful feature to give you a preview of how much your site could benefit from optimization... And they’re free! This section can be accessed from ImageRecycle’s website. Once you are logged in, you can head to the reports page from the My Account tab to generate a PDF report.
Web storage is not cheap, and nor is it fun looking for files to delete in order to free up space. And that is where Image Recycle comes into the picture. The new updates to Joomla’s Image Recycle plugin build upon the extension’s core values of optimizing your PDF files and images to save you space. However, they also go one step further, saving you more time, and simultaneously allowing you to stay on top of everything.
