Image optimization software

Is anyone using free software for image optimization?  I am creating an online portfolio and I am trying to get my website to load faster.  I would appreciate any help.  I have no idea about software I can use.

Hi @MissTweakIt. Here's a review article of a number of image optimizers: http://enviragallery.com/9-best-free-image-optimization-tools-for-image-compression/

It's always best to optimize your images before uploading them to your site, but if you are using WordPress and have images on the site that need to be optimized, there are a number of good plugins that will do the trick. Here's a review article of some of them: https://www.elegantthemes.com/blog/resources/best-wordpress-image-optimization-plugins

 

Cheers!

Good info @SiteDoctor and @MissTweakIt!

 

Love Envira Gallery, it is awesome and I also use TinyPNG (also does other image types!).  Between these two plugins your images will be in rocket load mode!
