Nice tool

Works great! Reduces 30% (average) of images size.

Great tool when it works but I get a lot of Operation Timeouts (which I know is not the tools fault). After about 500 images it crashed VS 2012 Update 1.

  • Image Optimizer - Project opened through FTP
    1 Posts | Last post July 28, 2013
    • Is it right that Image Optimizer is not working when the project is opened through FTP or it is just me?
      
      If it is not working, can this be added?
      
      ..it optimized only cached image on local drive but don't know if it was uploaded back to ftp but definitely it wasn't optimizing remote images..
      
      Otherwise great job!!!
      
      Thank you :-)
      
      
  • Smushit

    • When the service cannot be reached the image will be deleted. :(
  • Proxy issues
    2 Posts | Last post March 21, 2013
    • Awesome extension however I can't get past my network's proxy server. The system settings are fine which has me wondering if the extension attempts to use the proxy when connecting to the web services. Any ideas?
    • same error here... Mads Kristensen or someone can fix it?
  • Auto Optimization
    1 Posts | Last post October 31, 2012
    • Tool works great, my website have an option for users to upload their own images and build content. I want to auto optimize those everday, is there an option.
  • Problem with Smushit Service Lately?
    1 Posts | Last post September 12, 2012
    • I would say over the past couple weeks every file i try to optimize with the plugin says: No optimization needed.
      
      Is there a problem with the plugin as of late?
  • Problem with file names including '-'
    1 Posts | Last post June 25, 2012
    • I faced with the following error "The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive." with an image containing '-' character in its name.
      
      thanks by the way, it really helps =) 
      
  • Not working in website projects
    5 Posts | Last post April 30, 2012
    • When I try to optimize images on my 'images' folder I get this message in the output window: 
      
      ------ Image optimization started -----
      
      No PNG or JPG images in selected folder(s)
      
      ------ Image optimization finished -----
      
      There is about 30 jpg and png files in my images folder so it looks like there is something wrong with the plugin. This is for a website project / not a "Web Appliction" project.
      
      Thanks,
      Rush
    • I have same problem... how resolve this?
    • This is probably because you're image files are under source control. Check them out first and then run Image Optimizer. I'm working on an update that will check out the files from source control automatically
    • I'm not using source control (don't even have it installed) and I get this same issue. Also if I right-click a png or jpg image the optimize menu items are disabled.
    • Same here.  I even made a copy of the folder that I did not include into source control and I get the same message in the output window.
  • VS 2011 Dev Preview
    3 Posts | Last post January 17, 2012
    • Nice and useful extension, could you make it supports VS 2011?
    • Thanks. I have plans to build VS11 support for it shortly
    • I see it's listed as compatible now, thanks a lot!
  • PngOptimizer is better
    1 Posts | Last post December 20, 2011
    • Hi,
      why not use pngOptimizer to optimize images ?
      http://psydk.org/PngOptimizer.php
      
      It is the best compression tool i've tested.
      
  • Optimize Image Option Disabled
    2 Posts | Last post December 16, 2011
    • When I right click on gif images, the context menu contains the Optimize Image option, but it is greyed out.
      
      I am using SVN as my source control, but so far as I can make out, the file is not impacted by it, i.e. the file is not read only and can be edited easily by other applications.
      
      Suggestions?
    • I'm trying to figure out why that is. In the meantime, you can click the containing folder and you should be able to optimize all images within
