WPSSO Tune WP Image Editors

Description

Have you noticed that WordPress creates small images that seems a bit “fuzzy” – nothing like the nice sharp original you uploaded?

The reason is that after an image is resized, that image must be sharpened – but WordPress doesn’t do any sharpening, so the resized image remains a bit “fuzzy” – not what you want for a featured image or shared image on social sites! 😉

The WPSSO Tune WP Image Editors (WPSSO TIE) add-on provides this missing WordPress feature – it automatically applies sharpening to all JPEG images resized by the WordPress ImageMagick library.

Compatible with all image compression / optimization plugins:

Image sharpening / adjustments are applied during the WordPress image resize operation, so the resulting resized image / thumbnail can be optimized afterwards as usual.

Extends the features of the WPSSO Core plugin (required plugin).

Applies adjustments to resized images (aka thumbnails) using ImageMagick:

  • Enable or disable image adjustments / sharpening for resized images.
  • Uses a better compression quality of 92% (WordPress default is 82%).
  • Applies a default amount of sharpening values to all resized images.

Optionally select different primary / secondary image editor(s) for WordPress:

  • GD Only
  • GD and ImageMagick
  • ImageMagick Only
  • ImageMagick and GD (WordPress default)

Optionally fine-tune the image filter priority and image adjustment options:

  • Modify the default ‘image_make_intermediate_size’ filter hook priority.
  • Enable / disable contrast leveling.
  • Increase / decrease the compression quality percentage.
  • Adjust sharpening values individually (sigma, radius, amount, threshold).
