Hi everyone, I am adding some pictures to the gallery on my site and was wondering if there is any way to turn off permanently the picture optimizer? so I don't have to turn it off for each pic I upload. Thanks to all.

Hi there Daniel,

Unfortunately there isn't a way to turn it off automatically when adding a picture to a picture widget.

However, the optimization of the image only takes place when added to the page using the Picture Widget so if you use a Text widget to add your images they will not be optimized.

I hope this helps.

Hey Daniel! Why don't you like the optimizer? It makes them load faster.

Thanks to both of you guys, I now understand that the optimization of the pictures is for loading speed purposes also and not only for resizing the files. I guess I wanted to keep the full size of my pictures but I’m not willing to sacrifice traffic to my site because of it. Thanks again.
Daniel.
