It compresses the images on the site but leaves your images half blank or more. It did that to all the images on my website and they do not even bother to reply to support requests on email.

I updated my PHP to the latest version yesterday on 2 of my sites which i have this plugin and i have a problem. When the plugin is activate i get error HTTP when i upload an image in libary. When is inactive everything is ok so the problem is the plugin beacause i tested to both sites. Are you going to have any update to fix it because i was happy about your plugin until now.

This is a decent plugin I like that it compress images upto 5mb. Big negative for me I set compress level at 88% it is really doing compress at 52$ to 60% WTF It should have dropped the quality if images like 12% to 18% at most. I had like a 400k image and now is like 150k. Really should have been like 325k to 365k after it was compressed. Most of the images on my site look like crap now.

Hello, I test it and i liked the results, BUT. I see the last update was 7 months ago. (Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress.) Is reSmush.it still supported? Thank you.
