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 (aka 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.

WPSSO Core Plugin Required

WPSSO Tune WP Image Editors (aka WPSSO TIE) is an add-on for the WPSSO Core plugin. WPSSO Core and its add-ons make sure your content looks best on social sites and in search results, no matter how webpages are shared, re-shared, messaged, posted, embedded, or crawled.
