    I've just optimized one of my WordPress sites using EWWW Image Optimizer. Ran my images though default plugin settings to find out that my website has became almost two times slower than before. At least I know what I won't be using on rest of my sites to decrease load time. And the thing is that I checked remove original image option. I am so frustrated now.

    did you check the size of the images now? if the size reduced, then the chance that you check it when your internet connection lower, if the sized much bigger than original, then don't optimize the images
