Paid Optimization Plugins
WHEN INVESTING A FEW DOLLARS REALLY MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Having a lot of images on your site will slow it down. So you need to keep these images optimized, which can be done manually… but who’s got the time for that, right? ShortPixel takes care of it right on your site — we bulk optimize every site we launch, and the plugin keeps newly added images optimized, too. “Plug It and Forget It!”
“Recognized as the MOST POWERFUL caching plugin by WordPress experts”, WP Rocket is very powerful and user-friendly. We get our websites running much faster with a few clicks. It saves us a lot of manual optimizations and we <3 that.
We use DepositPhotos for all our images, professional photos, vectors, etc. Literally millions of images available for a pretty affordable price — check out their $30/month plan that gets you 30 images! 😉
