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.

  • Smushit missing

    • Hello, I've noticed, smushit library has moved, and thus optimization is not further possible.
      
      Every time png is processed, i get:
      The remote name could not be resolved: 'smushit.eperf.vip.ac4.yahoo.com'
  • Broke

    • was working, now its not... but what would be good is if this plugin can be executed via c# code within your application then that would be pure gold!
  • The remote name could not be resolved

    • 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.
    • I'm seeing this as well:
      
      The remote name could not be resolved: 'smushit.eperf.vip.ac4.yahoo.com'
      
      Is there a place at yahoo to check on this?

  • And ... what's about SVG?
    1 Posts | Last post September 08, 2014
    • 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,
      Martin

  • Skip optimization for some images
    1 Posts | Last post June 16, 2014
    • 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?
