There are many Online image compression tools available many come with a string attached, few offers reliable compression in reducing file size.
TinyPNG is a free image compression site that helps website owners/photographers to reduce file size of images by more than 70% yet keeping the quality untouched.
Which is Best Online Tool to Reduce Image File Size ?
There are hundreds of JPEG Compression, PNG compression sites out there but not every site is capable of doing what it says.
I’ve tested good number of sites and found TinyPNG is the best image compression site as of now.
I’ll be regularly checking out any new sites that offer this same function ” Image Compression ” and update this post if i found better alternatives.
How to Compress Images on TinyPNG:
- Visit TinyPing website
- Upload your original images in supported formats: JPEG/PNG
- Image will be processed / compressed
- Download Image or Save to Dropbox or Download as Zip file
As you can see in the above screenshot, Tinypng has reduced the uploaded image to 725KB from original size of 976KB saving 74%.
TinyPNG allows you to upload maximum of 20 images at a time to process all and you can download it as Zip file.
Maximum file size per image is 5MB. So this online tool may not be a good option for Photographers whose photo size may be larger than 5MB.
This is handy tool for Bloggers/ Website owners who run small business to reduce website loading time.
Since Google considers page speed as ranking factor, many site which has lot of images face issue of taking much time to load for visitors.
These websites need to take action by either reducing size from within their site using Image compression plugins if it’s on wordpress or they need to download image, compress it & re-upload it to work properly.
