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.
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?
Well done on the extension, it looks great. However I wasnt able to get it up an running.
I installed it. When I right click on an image (.gif, .jpg, .png) in solution explorer, I dont get the option to Optimize the image, its greyed out.
If I right click on a folder and click optimize images - the output window reports "No optimization needed" for each image. This occurs with every folder containing images I try.
I have tried to extract a data uri via a css stylesheet or by right clicking on the image, but the option is never available to me.
I have installed this extension on 2 seperate PC's and have same issue. I disabled all other extensions thinking there may be a conflict but no luck.
Any idea what I might be doing wrong? I downloaded the latest version and installed that. Any tips as to where I am going wrong?
I am also missing the dataURI functionality, If I right click on an image in the CSS file I have no options to convert it to base64. The only options I have that are Image Optimizer related are just the plain vanilla Optimize images on folders in the solution explorer. I am using VS2010SP1 Ultimate on Windows 7. The functionality I was hoping to get from the extension seems to be missing for me.
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 have an issue with Image optimizer while using Team foundation, whilst the images are not checked out, the image optimizer status says that there is no need to optimize the images, after I check them out, the optimizer does his job, so there is something to optimize after all. Anyway I drilled it down to the conclusion that you need to remove the read only attribute from the images and then it works fine, and that's what TFS does to your local files when they are not checked out for edit.
This looks awesome! :-)
Just a quick question -- is there a blog post somewhere which describes how the image embedding in CSS is handled? I'm asking because this is known to be problematic, see fx http://www.phpied.com/the-proper-mhtml-syntax/
