Tools and Developer API

Our service is based on a Software-As-A-Service model, in which the image optimization is offered via an API from our Cloud. We are constantly working to provide our customers more options to use our services, in order to save them the effort to implement themselves the calls to our API and to support more advanced needs as for example optimizing an entire images folder and monitoring changes to that folder. Our services can currently be accessed through several tools and APIs. We are also planning to add other tools as Client Libraries for Java and Ruby, Plugins for Joomla and Magento and a mobile app. If you need to access our service via any of theese and it's not yet listed below, please contact us as we might have a development version in progress.

Check below the currently available tools:

WordPress Plugin

If your site uses WordPress, ShortPixel Image Optimizer plugin gets you up and running in seconds, optimizing all your past images with a push of a button and all your new images automatically.

ShortPixel Website Optimizer

ShortPixel Website Optimizer offers a straightforward web interface to our API, available to any PHP website (Magento, Joomla, Drupal, custom brew, etc) and allows optimization of the site's image folders.

PHP Client Library

The PHP Client Library features quick configuration and an easy fluent syntax for accessing our services, thus greatly reducing your implementation time.

ShortPixel Command Line Tool

ShortPixel Command Line Tool can optimize image folders from the command line, so it can be configured as a Cron (or other task scheduler) job.

Reducer API

This API allows you to shrink an image based on the URL of the image. You can call it from any programming language that allows you to send an HTTP POST request. The image has to be available online in order to be shrunk via this API.

Post-Reducer API

This API allows you to shrink an image that is not accessible online, by uploading it to our servers via a POST HTTP call. You can call it from any programming language that allows you to send an HTTP POST request.
