Compressor reduce image size

#Tool – Optimize Images For Social Media With Compressor

The problem

Whether you want to match a “recommended file size” or have to deal with hard limitations, it is not always easy — let alone quick — to come up with the perfect image for social media.

Reduce the image too much, and it will look terrible.

Don’t reduce it enough, and it won’t upload properly.

The solution

Now, Compressor by Stephane Lyver, lets you reduce drastically the size of an image or a photo, whilst maintaining a high quality with almost no difference before and after compression.

Cherry on the cake, the process is really straightforward and mostly automatic: no setup required, no Photoshop involved.

Simply upload your file, choose your preferred compression method — Lossless or Lossy — and submit.

You will be redirected to a page where you can compare the original file with the compressed version, see how much Kb you are saving, and of course, download your reduced-size image.


As a social media manager, you can leverage the power of Compressor in many ways, and in particular:

  • To optimize the quality of your cover pictures.
  • To save time when uploading many files at once, for instance in a Facebook album.
