gulp-imagemin Build Status XO code style

Minify PNG, JPEG, GIF and SVG images with imagemin

Issues with the output should be reported on the imagemin issue tracker.


$ npm install --save-dev gulp-imagemin



const gulp = require('gulp');
const imagemin = require('gulp-imagemin');

gulp.task('default', () =>

Custom plugin options

	imagemin.gifsicle({interlaced: true}),
	imagemin.jpegtran({progressive: true}),
	imagemin.optipng({optimizationLevel: 5}),
		plugins: [
			{removeViewBox: true},
			{cleanupIDs: false}

Note that you may come across an older, implicit syntax. In versions < 3, the same was written like this:

	interlaced: true,
	progressive: true,
	optimizationLevel: 5,
	svgoPlugins: [
			removeViewBox: true

Custom plugin options and custom gulp-imagemin options

		plugins: [
				removeViewBox: true
], {
	verbose: true


Comes bundled with the following lossless optimizers:

These are bundled for convenience and most users will not need anything else.

imagemin(plugins?, options?)

Unsupported files are ignored.


Type: Array
Default: [imagemin.gifsicle(), imagemin.jpegtran(), imagemin.optipng(), imagemin.svgo()]

Plugins to use. This will overwrite the default plugins. Note that the default plugins comes with good defaults and should be sufficient in most cases. See the individual plugins for supported options.


Type: object


Type: boolean
Default: false

Enabling this will log info on every image passed to gulp-imagemin:

gulp-imagemin: ✔ image1.png (already optimized)
gulp-imagemin: ✔ image2.png (saved 91 B - 0.4%)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
