    Search ‘image compression’ in the plugin manager. There are plenty of choices

    In the plugin manager you can choose 'Search ‘image compression’, it is good option for you.

    Why look for images compressing Plugins?

    There is online tools & software for images compressing so why to use Plugins? You can use Plugins but using online software and tools is but much better than Plugins.

    If you want free plugin the SmushIt for image compression is free. And there is also paid one from the WpMu team, which is only worth it if you have some budget to spend on their plugins.

    "Media Webp" or any other plugin with webp that converts your pics into smaller files

    We use Shortpixel for our image compression. It does a great job and automatically resizes the images as well. really speeds up load times.

    WordPress Jetpack plugin also takes care of the compressing images now a days. And from this week even the Cloudflare is getting into the feature set.

    Don't use Jetpack. If fills your theme with junk.

    If you want to compress images, do it before you upload

    I've tried a bunch, but I keep coming back WP Smush. It's simple, easy to use, and even the free version is pretty great at compressing images.
