Automatically optimize (compress) all images used in Nuxt.js

📖 Release Notes


  1. Add @nuxtjs/imagemin dependency to your project
yarn add --dev @nuxtjs/imagemin # or npm install --save-dev @nuxtjs/imagemin
  1. Add @nuxtjs/imagemin to the buildModules section of nuxt.config.js
export default {
  buildModules: [
    // Simple usage

    // With options
    ['@nuxtjs/imagemin', { /* module options */ }]

:warning: If you are using Nuxt < v2.9 you have to install the module as a dependency (No --dev or --save-dev flags) and use modules section in nuxt.config.js instead of buildModules.

Using top level options

export default {
  buildModules: [
  imagemin: {
    /* module options */


See image-minimizer-webpack-plugin for the complete list of options available.
