Imagify will optimize your images without sacrificing quality, convert WebP, and help your website load faster!
When you enable it, it will automatically optimize all of your images, including thumbnails, when you upload them to WordPress. You may also use Imagify to convert WebP images, which can help your website load faster by reducing its size.
Log in to WordPress Dashboard. Go to Plugins > Add New and search for the Imagify plugin and then click the Install Now button, then the Activate button.
If you don't already have an account, click the "sign up, it's free!" button, enter your email address and press submit.

Now, click the "I have my API Key" button, and Paste the API key into the field. Click the "Connect me" button
Click the "Go to settings" button to configure your optimization settings.
You can keep the default settings or adjust them to your preference.
To enable WebP Format on Strattic you will need to have the following settings.

Check "use <picture> tags"
Enter your WordPress site URL into the "specify the URL:" field. (this will get replaced when publishing as needed.)
Once your settings have been updated click the green "Save & go to bulk optimizer" button.
Now we will need to optimize all the existing images in your library, from the Bulk Optimization page, click the blue "Imagif'em all" button to begin.
