Wow. This might just be one of the coolest plugins I’ve found in recent time: WP SmushIt.
I’ve written about the service a while ago but someone took it to the next level and integrated it directly in WordPress, auto-optimizing the images on the fly.
It simply adds a new column on the right (see image above) and a few more options if you want to tweak. Optimizing your images can reduce size of your page load, reduce the time to load, and speed up your blog for the world to see. Only positives here!
Seriously, this plugin is sweet.
