Performing Galleries with ImageRecycle Image Compression
In order to have the most professional website, we have to use high-quality images on professional and responsive galleries but the most important fact is that all your galleries should load fast and the images shouldn’t take up much server space.
Use ImageRecycle with all major galleries manager is really easy, you just have to identify the images you want to use and go to the ImageRecycle dashboard in order to select and compress all the images for the gallery you are going to create or is already posted.
The best way to show how to compress images is with an example, so we are going to create and compress a gallery, take in mind that you can do this with non-created and published galleries.
These are the images that we are going to use for the new gallery, so we’re just going to upload the pictures and save as a draft.
Now that we have uploaded the images that we are going to use in the gallery, we can go to the ImageRecycle dashboard in order to select and compress the images, just go to Media > ImageRecycle.
First of all, you are going to be able to see some filters that we can use to find images faster, filters are:
-All / Optimized / Not Optimized.
-Type of files(JPG, PNG, GIF, and PDF).
For this example, we are going to use JPG files uploaded on February 2020 that are not optimized so these are the filters that we are going to use:
Finally, just click on “Filter”, there is also a textbox to search for an exact image by its name.
Now you should be able to see only the image that matches with the filter, now you have three different options to optimize images, these options are:
One by one
You can optimize an image just by clicking on the “Optimize” button that is located at the “action” section after it.
After click on it, you will be able to see how much the image has been compressed on the “Compression” section.
There is an option that you can use if you want to compress only a selection of images.
Just click on the checkbox that is before the images you want to select and then on the dropdown options, choose “Optimize selected” and click on “Apply”.
You will see a circle loading on the left side of the “Optimize” button, at the end of the process, you will see the compression rate on the “Compression” section.
The last option is the one you should use if you want to optimize all your the images shown with the filter.
For this option, you only have to click on the “Optimize All” button that is after the bulk options.
You will be able to see a loading bar that shows you the images that are going to be compressed and the ones that have been compressed with an estimated of how much time it is going take.
This process is going to be done on the background so you will be able to use WordPress as usual.
These are the options available to compress images with ImageRecycle, as you can see, these are really easy to use and allows you to optimize your images as you want.
You will also have the option to revert images to original because ImageRecycle stores a backup of all your files for one month, awesome! Isn’t it? :).
