This is a package for Laravel 5 that optimize images for Google PageSpeed Insights requirements.


This package uses the following tools in your system:


Require this package with composer:

composer require dmknvk/laravel-image-optimizer

After updating composer, add the ServiceProvider to the providers array in config/app.php


Copy the package config to your local config with the publish command:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="DmKnvk\LaravelImageOptimizer\ServiceProvider"


Set your directories pathes that will be optimized in config/image-optimizer.php

'dirs' => [
  public_path('media'),            // all png/jpeg images in folder public/media will be optimized recursively
  public_path('upload') => [
    'types'     => ['images/png'], // array of mime types, that will be optimized (now supported image/png and image/jpeg)
    'recursive' => false,          // search images only in root directory (public/upload)

Run artisan command (or add to cron) with root priveleges (to avoid problems with permissions)

sudo php artisan image-optimizer:run

All files in your directories will be optimized with max optimization levels (takes some time).
