The answer to the first question is very simple, in fact it is also for the second. If you are a student, or even at work you have had to send a document by mail, or upload it to the cloud, you may have noticed that the heavier your file, the longer it will take. The same happens with images, being a file that we want to send or upload to the internet, the greater the weight, the longer. Today we will teach you how to compress an image without losing quality in resolution.
But why reduce them if I want my image to look its best?
We understand your interest in showing the world your work in detail, but let’s be aware, a very large file consumes too much space, both for your computer and for that of others.
Also those who spend their time writing for blogs come across the need to optimize their images. As a reader of a website, you will agree that a good image makes a topic more attractive, it even helps you understand it better. Due to this, all those who dedicate themselves to writing a blog spend their time looking for an image that is optimal in both quality and size.
Perfect, so how to compress my images?
The answer to this is very simple, fortunately there are a lot of free websites that will help you. Of course there are programs like Photoshop that can do it, but not everyone has such a program. If we have internet access we can do it quickly and quite simply.
Optimizilla is a completely free website, this tool will allow you to upload up to 20 files at a time. It has a button that will allow you to change its language. The image formats it supports are JPEG, GIF, and PNG. It is a very easy to use tool, even its interface explains the procedure.
Once the process is finished, you will be able to download your images in a single .rar file, you will only have to decompress it and you will be able to see your images.
IloveIMG is another free website that will help you in your task of compressing your images, saving their quality as much as possible. Like the previous one, it allows you to upload several files at the same time. The formats supported by this tool are JPG, PNG, SVG, and GIF.
Unlike the previous one, this site has more features, ranging from resizing your images, converting and even editing them.
Compress JPEG is an online platform with an interface very similar to Optimizilla. Just like the first site we introduced you to, you can upload up to 20 files at the same time. However, this tool supports JPEG, GIF, PNG and PDF formats, a point in favor of Compress JPEG.
Like the previous two, it is very simple to use, seeing it you will understand. This platform will download your files in a compressed .zip, so in the end it’s just a matter of decompressing it.
Like the previous ones, it helps us reduce the weight of our images. You will find this particular website in English only. Like the previous ones, you can upload up to 20 files at a time, with a maximum weight of 5MB each. It handles the WebP, PNG and JPEG formats, being a website created primarily to preserve 100% of the transparency in your PNG images.
Chrome, Firefox and Safari support this platform. It has a paid version that eliminates the weight limit of 5MB, allowing you a maximum of 75MB per file.
Kraken.io, like the previous one, has two versions, one for pay to use that unlocks more functions, and another for free use.
It has a usage limit from time to time, in addition to the maximum weight per file of 1MB.
Waifu2x is a rather peculiar website, although this tool does not help you to compress images, however, it does help you reduce the noise of them, which will benefit you if you found a good image, but with some noise in it. You can upload your own file, or write its URL.
In style you can choose the option of “Illustration” or “Photography”, and the noise reduction goes from none to low, medium, high and very high (“None”, “Low”, “Medium”, “High”, “ Highest”).
