Images in your plan: Each Image Optimizer plugin plan has a limit on the number of images you can optimize. The control panel tracks how many images you’ve optimized, and how many are left on your plan. Click Upgrade in order to increase the number of images you can optimize or Renew plan if your subscription has run out. See the Image Optimizer plugin by Elementor page for more details. 

This part of the control panel is only accessible to the account owner. Other users who have access to the WordPress dashboard will not see this section.
