Core Enhancements, Performance

The Prizm Image plugin helps to achieve web site performance by optimizing images while maintaining resolution and visual quality. Compare our output to the popular Smush.It website and you will see significant reduction in image sizes. Also, Prizm Image has no size limit on the files that can submitted for reduction.

This plugin integrates with the Prizm Image API to optimize images for a Joomla website. It provides customizable options to do the following:

Optimize JPEG compression
Strip metadata from all JPEGs (except for copyrights)
Convert between Progressive JPEGs and Sequential JPEGs
Optimize PNGs
Optimze GIFs

User Registration
You will need to register for a Prizm Image account in order to obtain a free License Key to use the plugin. This is a free account.

How does it work?
There are three ways you can optimize images using your customized settings:

Automatically on upload: Automatically optimize every image you add to the Media Manager's Library (unless you disable the Use Prizm Image on upload option in Components > Prizm Image > Options).
Individually: Run existing images through the Prizm Image Component. In the Prizm Image Component, select the files and/or folders to reduce and click the Reduce Selected button for any image you'd like to optimize.
Entire Media Library: Optimize all the images in the Media Manager's Library. In the Prizm Image Component, click the Reduce Media Library button. Once run, the Reduce Media Library button becomes disabled. If you wish to change a setting for the entire media library, the Reduce Media Library button can be re-enabled in the options, Components > Prizm Image > Options.
Configuration Settings
Configure the options in the Components > Prizm Image > Options as follows:

Prizm Image License Key

Couldn't Test. After install, it says you need to register a free Prizm key. So you follow the provided link but there's no key to be found.

Ease of use

Looks easy but without a key its useless


Couldn't find what I wanted after an hour on their site, so I'd say support lacks.

I used this to: Nothing - Couldn't use it since I couldn't the so-called "free key". This is NOT a free utility.


Not working - just leads to a blank page.

Ease of use

Simple to setup using the basic documentation.



Please add sort options on the columns. and add filter's on images ie "Processed" , No Savings , and Not Processed.

Ease of use

If you have lots of images its easy to use once, but after that its not as you cannot filter or sort.

Good but not enough

Images are well optimized but whatever setup we used we can't satisfy to Google optimisation demands.

Ease of use

Easy to install, setup and use.


Not use. No need.

I used this to: Compress website images ti gain Google more score points.


Function good, but compression algorithm not good enough for page speed insights - and i think this is the most reason for compressed images

Ease of use

Easy to use.

I used this to: I want to compress my images because of pagespeed insights - but the results where not good enough. i tried all 3 quality options. But Google said at least there a 3 % you can compress.

This plug-in worked straight out of the box and gave amazing results using the default settings. I just don't have the time to resize images individually and this process made optimisations to my complete media library in minutes, without loss of appreciable quality.

Web page now loads up in a blink of the eye after reducing some image file sizes by 94% and has bumped my google site speed tests up 15 points
