I found many times the PunyPNG and Smushit websites either timed out or returned 500 errors. While I realize this is not the tool's fault, it does limit the usefulness.
In addition, while working with Assembla as a code repository, it will often delete images that do not need optimizing. Those that were optimized are saved properly. Can't seem to see a pattern, but once again this really limits the usefulness. If you optimize a folder, you have to figure out what images are deleted that should not have been from others that were optimized.
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?
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 =)
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.
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
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.
I had been using your plugin and love it. But reinstalled my computer and now just installed the plugin again and the "Extra Data Uri to ClipBoard Option" option when i right click files is not showing up.
The Optimize images option is there but why cant i see the "Extra Data Uri to ClipBoard Option" option?
