Compress JPG Online Tutorial with Smallpdf

How to compress JPG online using Smallpdf.

Optimized for Size and Quality


Our online tool will ensure that your images are of the perfect condition—while removing repetitive patterns and cutting down its size as much as possible. While traditional image compressors would compromise some of your images’ quality for a smaller file, we will ensure that the color, formatting, and text-content remain intact.

If the resulting file is not of a file size you desire, you can repeat the process. However, for the second round, opt for the ‘Strong Compression’ option. The more substantial compression level should reduce your size even further, though it may affect the lossy compression quality of your JPG files.

Can I Remove My JPEG Files From Your Site?


You do not need to worry—Smallpdf will scan our system every five minutes and remove any uploaded image that has been lingering online for more than an hour. During this period, feel free to play around with the compression rates until you can reduce the file size to your needs.

And remember, other than JPEG images, you’re free also to compress other image formats, such as BMP, TIFF, GIF, and PNG. We will conveniently squeeze and save the output file as a JPG for you!
