The three tools we tested were,
And we used some sample images from https://unsplash.com/
The optimisation varied greatly between the three tools. Kraken only allow free optimisation of images up to 1Mb so we were a little limited to the files we could test. Their optimisation was only 1.10% reduction in file size.
In comparison TinyPng were able to reduce the same file by 67%, and ShortPixel were a whopping 86%. We usually aim to get our images down to under 100kb when we publish them on a page which ShortPixel was able to do.
Both TinyPNG and Shortpixel have plugins for WordPress to allow you to optimise your images in bulk rather than uploading and downloading images – which is really useful if you have an existing site with lots of images.
