Installation using the WordPress interface
Go to the dashboard. Open Plugins => Add new. Enter Robin Image Optimizer to the search field. When it’s been found, press Install and Activate.
Now the Robin Image Optimizer plugin has been installed on your website, and you can use it to optimize images.
Installation using the Clearfy interface
If you’ve already used Clearfy then simply add Robin Image Optimizer as its component (add-on). Open the dashboard, go to the Clearfy settings. Open Components and search for Robin Image Optimizer in there. Install it by pressing Install. Make sure to activate the add-on by pressing Activate.
Check whether the Robin Image Optimizer component has been added correctly. If you see Quick start in the Clearfy menu then you’ve successfully activated the component.
Installation using the FTP-client
If you can’t install the plugin from the dashboard then your hosting should have restrictions on uploaded files. In this case, upload the plugin on your website using the FTP protocol.
Once you enter your account details, all information from the server will be displayed on the FTP-client bar. You can enter the path to the destination directory on your website using the Remote site field, or select it manually.
Move the Robin Image Optimizer archive to the plugins folder on your hosting. Use the hosting console to unpack the file.
Important! If your hosting console can’t unpack archives consider uploading the unpacked version of the plugin’s folder to the website. In this case, however, it will take more time to upload the file.
Make sure the plugin works correctly. Go to Plugins, find Robin Image Optimizer, and activate it. Complete the installation by pressing Activate.
There are three possible ways of activating the license. The choice depends on:
- whether you’ve used the free Robin Image Optimizer version before switching to the premium access;
- whether you have a free Clearfy version on your website;
- whether you’ve activated the Clearfy business license.
We will discuss each option of the license activation below.
Where Can I Find A License Key?

Copy the license key to the clipboard. You will need it to activate the license.
What Should I Do If The Confirmation E-mail Is Missing?
Sometimes, this e-mail can be marked as Spam. And you can’t activate Robin Image Optimizer without a license. However, you can recover the license from the Freemius account – it’s a server that generates licenses. Follow the link to open the main page. Click Log in => User Login on the top right corner.
Then you’ll see the authorization page, where you need to enter your login (the e-mail address) and the password (the one you haven’t received in the e-mail).
Click Forgot your password to reset the old password and set up a new one.
Enter the e-mail address associated with the purchase and click Send password reset link.
You’ve reset the password successfully. Check your mailbox for the e-mail saying that you’ve changed the password. Now you can set up the new password. Press Sign In and open the page to set up a new password.
Think of a secured password.
Once the new password has been saved, enter new login details and go to your account. The Renewals and Billing section shows the Robin Image Optimizer license information.
