I am using an extension called GTspeed for image optimization; however it is not working because it is asking to give images wrtie permission. I am using magento and ultimo theme if that will help in asnwering this question. Thank You!

You'll need to either SSH or FTP into the image storage directory. This is probably in media/ or var/. Make sure the folder and every sub-folder are writable with permissions 0755 or 0777 (if your installation permissions are unorthodox).

Hope that helps. You may need to contact your dev partner if you're not technical.
