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.

    • This is also happening to me when I try to use the plugin.  Was there a response to this issue at all?
    • Is there a known fix for this? It appears to still be happening.

    • The PunyPNG domain seems to have gone down, it now returns 502 on any call (including in browser)

  • And ... what's about SVG?

    • Hi Mads,
      I know, optimizing SVG graphics/images is something complete different and difficult in comparison to PNG & Co, but ... any chance to integrate a kind of TinySVG?
      Kind regards,

    • Works great, but having an issue that the optimiazation adds some artifacts for some png images that I dont want. (background images with solid colors changing from dark to light grey)
      Can I prevent it from optimizing a few images in the solution?

    • Expanding optimizations to also include SVG would be sweet. SVGO is an available library for this, or this one:
  • An exception occurred during a WebClient request.

    • Hi Mads, 
      I'm getting the following error when trying your extension.  I'm guessing it might be a firewall issue but I don't have much information to go on.  Any clue?
    • An exception occurred during a WebClient request.
    • 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?
