Fast Free Image Compression that really works
Compress images is critical for any website project. One of the most popular services is ReSmush.it.
ReSmish.it is a viable replacement for the old Yahoo Smush.it.
This isn't an online drag/drop feature at reSmush it. It's actually integrated into other services such as Wordpress, Drupal, Magento and other CMS tools. The most popular access is via JSON Webservice calls.
If you don't have those services, you can download the command line client from GitHub. It's a quick command line install. However, if you're not familiar with Homebrew, it may not be for you.
reSmush.it is a FREE API that provides image optimization. reSmush.it has been implemented on the most common CMS such as Wordpress, Drupal or Magento.
Moreover, reSmush.it is the most used image optimization API with more than 2.7 billions images already treated, and is still totally Free of charge !
Notes on Testing
The CLI client install from GitHub was very easy. Any missing libraries files were auto-installed - as I didn't have the latest curl or jq. After installing, I moved the resmushit-cli.sh file to /usr/local/bin so that I could run the command everywhere.
The `resmushit-cli.sh` doesn't support HEIC format and files have to be less than 5MB. This is a free service, so I am not complaining.
I am working on writing a Python script for Dropzone so that I can just drag and drop images to be compressed. Once completed, I'll upload the Action here.
