When uploading images to your WordPress media library and eLearnCommerce Platform you will need to optimize them to make sure they are not using a lot of your available space. Optimizing images will also increase your website’s speed.

If you are an expert, you can use software like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. But these can be expensive and hard to use for many website owners.

There are many free, easy to use tools you can use today! Here are five good ones:


Shortpixel allows you to compress JPEG, PNG and (animated) GIF images. You can choose up to 50 files to upload and decide between three different compression levels.


Optimizilla uses a combination of algorithms to get the lowest image size possible keeping the required level of quality. You can upload up to 20 JPEG and PNG files to compress.


Kraken allows you to upload files in bulk and choose between three optimization modes. It also has a PRO version that comes with several features such as image resizing, unlimited images sizes, and more.


Compressnow allows you to upload up to 10 images at a time and choose a compression level between 0 – 100%. You can then download the files one by one or get a ZIP file with all of them.


Compressor allows you to optimize your images drastically reducing their size whilst maintaining a high level of quality. It supports JPEG, PNG, GIF and SVG and two types of conversion (although one of them is only available for JPEG and PNG files).
