Optimize your images automatically with the Optimole plugin for WordPress

What is Optimole?

Simply speaking, Optimole makes your images weigh even 80% less while looking just as good!

It processes your images in real time and it’s fully cloud-based (doesn’t strain your server).

Optimole goes a lot further than any other tool in the market:

  • Optimole takes your images and optimizes them automatically
  • Reduces their weight without sacrificing quality
  • Picks the right image size for the visitor's browser and viewport
  • Serves images via a fast image CDN​ and uses lazy loading to display them

What happens once you install Optimole

Instead of compressing images locally and then replacing them in your media library permanently, Optimole does everything in the cloud.

Once you activate the plugin, Optimole fetches your images and does all of its optimization magic in real time.

Optimole always serves the perfect version of the image – taking into account the visitor’s device, browser, and screen size.

This means that your visitor will always see the perfect version of the image that’s been tailor-tuned for them individually.

Your images will be served from a CDN and not from your main server. This reduces load times and your bandwidth usage.

Compressing images is just the tip of the iceberg. Optimole makes your website much faster overall!

Need more?

The free Optimole plugin allows you to optimize unlimited number of images in the limit of 5,000 visits per month.

If that’s not enough for you, consider one of our premium plans. Apart from the specs bump, you also get some cool additional features!


The number of images that you can optimize is unlimited, as well as the number of changes to them.

Once you exceed these, we will contact you and kindly ask to upgrade to the plan that fits you best.

Our FREE plan uses our custom made CDN built with 7 locations around the globe. For the paid plans, we have direct integration with Amazon Cloudfront, with more than 130 locations around the globe. 

Short answer, YES. We can help you integrate your default CDN but it will require some additional work from our side and is available to Enterprise plans. 

You don’t need to change your existing optimization plugin, image optimization is just a small part of what we do, if you are happy with ShortPixel for e.g, feel free to continue to use it, OptiMole would then take care only of serving your image at the RIGHT size, advanced cropping and smart lazy-loading.
