How does it work?

After you upload an image to your WordPress site, each resized image is uploaded to the TinyJPG or TinyPNG service. Your image is analyzed to apply the best possible optimization. Based on the content of your image an optimal strategy is chosen. The result is sent back to your WordPress site and will replace the original image with one smaller in size. On average JPEG images are compressed by 40-60% and PNG images by 50-80% without visible loss in quality. Your website will load faster for your visitors, and you’ll save storage space and bandwidth!

Getting started

Install this plugin and follow the instructions to set up your account. With a regular WordPress installation you can optimize roughly 100 images each month for free. The exact total depends on the number of thumbnail sizes that are in use in your WordPress installation. You can change which of the generated thumbnail sizes should be optimized on the Settings > TinyPNG – JPEG, PNG & WebP image compression page. Once installed you can also switch to a paid account which removes the limits and allows you to optimize as many images as you like.

Optimizing all your images

You can bulk optimize your existing JPEG, PNG, and WebP images all at once by going to Media > Bulk Optimization. Clicking on the big button will start optimizing all unoptimized images in your media library.

Multisite support

The plugin is fully multisite compatible and you can set the API key for all sites by defining the key in your wp-config.php file. View the installation instructions for more information.

WooCommerce compatibility

This plugin is fully compatible with WooCommerce. However, we have discovered that WooCommerce may be trying to regenerate image attachment metadata over and over again on each page visit. If you are using WooCommerce please follow the tips from the support section. This may make your WooCommerce shop even faster than it was before.

Once set up you will see a message on the Settings > TinyPNG – JPEG, PNG & WebP image compression page. This will work for normal and multisite WordPress installations.


Q: How many images can I optimize for free?

A: In a default WordPress installation you can optimize around 100 images for free each month. WordPress creates different thumbnails of your images which all have to be compressed. Some plugins even add more sizes, so take a look at the Settings > TinyPNG – JPEG, PNG & WebP image compression page before you start optimization.

Q: How can I remove the 500 limit?

A: Just add your Payment details on your account dashboard to remove the limit. For a small fee the additional compressions above 500 will then be charged to your account at the end of each month.

Q: What happens to the optimized images when I uninstall the plugin?

A: When you remove the plugin all your optimized images will remain optimized.

Q: I don’t recall uploading 500 photos this month but my limit is already reached. How is this number calculated?

A: When you upload an image to your website, WordPress will create different sized versions of it (see Settings > TinyPNG – JPEG, PNG & WebP image compression). The plugin will compress each of these sizes, so when you have 100 images and 5 different sizes you will do 500 compressions.

Q: Is there a file size limit?

A: No. There are no limitations on the size of the images you want to compress.

Q: Can I use the same API key on all my websites?

A: Yes, there are no limitations. You can add the same key everywhere.

Q: Can I hide my API key from the admin?

A: Yes, you can hide your API key from the admin so other admin users will not be able to see it. To do this you should define the API key in your wp-config.php file. See the installation instructions for more information.

Q: What happens when I reach my monthly limit?

A: Everything will keep on working, but newly uploaded images will not be optimized. Of course we encourage everyone to switch to a paid account to cover the hosting and development costs of the service.

Q: Can I optimize all existing images in my media library?

A: Yes! After installing the plugin, go to Media > Bulk Optimization, and click on the start button to optimize all unoptimized images in your media library.

Q: How do I switch to a paid account?

A: You can upgrade to a paid account by adding your Payment details on your account dashboard. Additional compressions above 500 will then be charged at the end of each month as a one-time fee.

I **LOVE** TINYPNG/TINYeverything. The product suite of Tiny compressors are simply the best out there. They are fast, clean, extremely efficient, very reasonably priced. Don't waste your time looking elsewhere like I did. I actually all of them all, and they all are either way more expensive, slower, less good, have a bulky interface, or other problems. Trust me, trust the panda. This is THE best plugin / image compressor tool available.

Great plugin allows you to speedup website using API from tinypng. Really useful, I don't have to minimize every image before uploading it to server.

So many site builders tend to overlook image compression - one of the most important aspects of site speed (and SEO). This plugin not only takes care of that problem but also completely automates it. Simply set it to compress images as you upload them and get (in my case at least) an average of 60-70% file size reduction - and that's lossless reduction. I tried others but found this plugin cuts about twice as much file size as the others I tried. I used to always worry about compressing images before uploading, and wondering if I had already compressed them or not. Now I never even have to think about it. Thanks, TinyPNG!
