We rate the plugin with 5 stars.
Imagify is a tool for WordPress sites that helps webmasters to compress images. It is extremely important for websites to offer a good page speed (loading time - speed). The size of the images (JPG / PNG) also plays a role here! The tool is from the makers of WP-Rocket, a cache plugin.
The tool can be used to compress new and existing images in order to save storage space and significantly increase the speed of the website. In other words: it loads faster and the website user sees content faster. The compression is carried out without any visible loss of quality - and everything directly in the WordPress dashboard.
Who is the plugin for? For almost everyone who has a WordPress website, actually. Agencies like us also benefit from Imagify, because we also use this plugin on customer websites. It is easy to use and works with little effort. The only thing to note: The browser window must remain open. If you close the browser while the images are being compressed, this also ends the process! Make sure you keep the window open.

Loading times are an SEO factor
It's important for a website to load quickly. Let's be honest: Nobody likes long waiting times. Imagify helps to compress your images so that the loading time of your website is improved. Logically, smaller images load faster, which is especially noticeable on the go.
The plug-in is particularly worthwhile for websites with many images, but it is also a must-have for smaller pages. It shrinks all images in file size and compresses them without any loss of quality.
