    Hello all,

    Recently I was looking for a wordpress plugin to compress the image size,

    and I found some plugins like ewww Image Optimizer and WP Smush, :D

    although both this plugin provides a free service but it severely limits .. :(

    free as in WP Smush could not compress the image with a size above 1M, :inpain: then they do not give a lossy compression optimization

    So, if we can do the compression itself by installing a particular library in CentOS? perhaps as ImageMagick or the other?

    If you can, please take the installation instructions .. thank you for your attention

    sorry for my poor english :shame::D

    not sure i understand ? ImageMagick PHP extension is already installed by default, but for auto image optimisation in Wordpress you need a plugin

    I have been looking into what is available for Wordpress image compression. Several Wordpress plugins are easy to set up and use. However, they are basically front-ends for open-source image optimization that can be run from their servers. Since Centminmod is used as a server platform, running your own command-line driven image optimization software is an option for sites with large volumes of images.

    For example, if you are running a Woocommerce e-commerce website that pulls down hundreds to thousands of product and other images, the use of an image optimization program that runs on your server can reduce costs, have more options for compression and image formats such as WebP and may do a better job. Another option is using a desktop image compression and conversion application. That can provide more real-time processing and tweaking but requires transfers between the app and the web server.

    I have used image optimizers for several years including mass/folder optimization for websites. I don't like paying several times the cost of an optimization program each year. If the workflow is such that a large volume of images needs to be optimized, I will continue to handle them through a discrete app while leaving the routine volume to one of the WordPress plugins.
