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.
I am having this same issue ("An exception occurred during a WebClient request"), but I don't believe it is a firewall problem. I watched the request/response in Fiddler, and it very clearly gets a response of 200 with a JSON object in the payload describing how much the image was "smushed" and where the new image resides. I don't see a follow-up request that actually retrieves the smushed image, though, so I'm guessing this is where the error is occurring. Any ideas?
Looks like the product I need right away. However, there doesn't seem to be support for Visual Web Developer 2012 Express (I attempted to install and it failed. Is this the case? If so, is there a similar product out there that I can use? Will there be support in the near future?
My company uses proxy for security.
My proxy settings work fine for Visual Studio itself, but Image Optimizer doesnt seem to use those settings.
"The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required."
Not sure if some of the responses to this question might help fix this.
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 :-)
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?
