How are you able to compress JPG images so much?

JPG is the most popular image format in the world partly because JPG images allows so much room for lossy compression. A compression is referred to as lossy when it irreversibly discards certain image information to reduce file size. The key is to balance between compression level and quality. Our JPG compressor can determine existing compression levels on your images (if any). This feature allows us to customize the compression level for each photo.

Plus, we apply progressive compression to your JPEG files, which makes it more compressible. At the same time, progressive JPG images start loading on your web pages without waiting for the visitors to download the whole picture.

Additionally, we also strip all metadata from JPG images. These include EXIF or XMP data that usually contains location, camera model, or date-taken...etc.

Can I compress JPG images even further?

You can reduce JPG file size even more by downscaling them using our image resizer. If you need to reduce JPG file size, even more, try converting jpg to webp. WebP is a newer file format developed by Google to compress web images. WebP can save 25-35% more file size compared to JPG.

What should I keep in mind when compressing JPG images?

You should know that JPEG compression applied is lossy. Which means it is using a prediction method and partial data for producing a smaller file size. Also, as mentioned before, EXIF and metadata will be lost. Always inspect your final JPEG images to make sure you are satisfied with the quality at intended usage.

When to compress JPG images?

You should compress JPG images when embedding them on web pages. Not only it saves bandwidth of your visitors, but your pages will load much faster. You can also compress JPG images when sharing them with friends and family.

When not to compress JPG images?

Do not compress JPG images that you intend to edit later. Lossy compression will leave your image editor with little image details to work with. Also, it is better to down-scale images first to see if that meets your file size requirements.
