Minify PNG and JPEG images. This plugin took a little more time than initially expected to install, nevertheless, I got it going in the end.

To install the plugin go ahead and type the following into the Grunt CLI:

sudo npm install grunt-contrib-imagemin --save-dev (drop the sudo if you're using Windows).

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-contrib-imagemin');

To run this task just type the following into terminal: 'grunt imagemin'.
