If you already know Resources Friday, you know that Friday is not only the last day of work, but it is also the day when you can discover new tools and resources that can make your work easier, more efficiently and in less time. In fact, today you’ll discover a new plugin for WordPress called Imagify that allows you to optimize images on your site with a simple click, with excellent results!
And also a tool for discovering Error404, broken links of a website.
But I will not reveal in advance, then, let’s start!

Key features include:
- 200 fonts

Imagify is a new plugin made by the team of WP-Rocket (the best caching plugin available for WordPress) and promises to squeeze the most of every image on your site without loss of quality. Curious how it works, yesterday I tested Imagify and I was really surprised by the simplicity of use, speed of compression but also by the results! I reduced by 70% the weight of my images without losing a minimum of quality. A really excellent result!
My opinion is that Imagify, very soon, will be the best plugins to optimize images, just as it was for WP-Rocket.
Unique, negative note:
You can optimize only 25MB of free images (150 images) every month, to increase this limit you have to pay for the premium version.
PS: At the first registration, you will receive a bonus of 75 MB, for a total of 100MB for the first month.
Below you can see a screenshot of my test.
