Google has made available three resources to measure Web Vitals:

Chrome User Experience Report https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-user-experience-report

PageSpeed Insights https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/

Google Search Console https://search.google.com/search-console

Externally from Google, you can use GTmetrix https://gtmetrix.com/ 

ShortPixel Image Optimizer https://shortpixel.com to compress your JPG and PNG images in real-time.

Note: if you have a page template, like a single page, which uses a JPG or PNG as a background for a DIV element you will need to also install the ShortPixel Adaptive Images plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/shortpixel-adaptive-images/
