About Our Plans
Each “Credit” can optimize one full size image uploaded to your media library and all of its generated thumbnails or alternate sizes.
You can get one time credit packs with no limits; however, we recommend a membership for agencies as monthly credits work best for setting client quotas.
Yes, thumbnails come free! It takes on average 12 credits from most competitors to optimize the identical image – making us 12x more efficient.
Check the number of existing images in your media library in list mode, then set a quota of at least 100 new images each month per linked website.
Each month the linked website can optimize images according to the quota you set when linking your website. You can modify it at anytime within the portal.
Memberships are a monthly allocation of images, think about it like your cell phone data plan, while credit packs are a one-time credit boost, great for optimizing existing images.
The best value is to get an annual membership with a starter bonus for optimizing existing images.
About The Software
Your images are securely backed up and optimized in the compression cloud, then only the smaller, light-weight images are served to your viewers.
You may choose between local backups, cloud backups or neither.
With local and cloud backups, you may restore a single image or all images to the original state at any time.
Autopilot checks your website multiple times a day for newly added images and optimizes them with your current settings.
Advanced is “smarter” than on-upload as everything happens off peak and in the background to not slow you down while uploading images and editing your site. It will take care of new AND existing images.
With any account you can link an unlimited number of websites, the only factor you need to account for is how you plan on allocating credits.
Yes! Each site can be linked to its own API Key so that you get detailed reporting on a site-by-site basis.
We even have a MainWP Extension for quick and easy bulk linking!
Your images will stay in the optimized form, before deactivating you can restore at anytime if you’d like them to be the original. Once you’re deactivated for an extended period of time then your backups will be deleted, so we recommend keeping the plugin active at all times.
