Compress JPEG file online
Select a picture on your computer or phone, set desired JPEG quality from 1 to 100 (compression level) and then click OK. Other settings already installed by default.
Main parameter that reduces file size is the quality of JPEG (or compression level). Lower quality (60-70) gives smaller file size. Subsampling in settings allows to optimize image details to further reduce the file size in kilobytes. Subsampling 1x1 is more suitable for small pictures. Subsampling 2x1 is most common and used in almost all digital cameras, this parameter is good for large images more than 1 megapixel or >1366x768. Subsampling 2x2 gives smallest file size, but the image quality may be low, this option is suited for very blurred pictures.
The original image is not changed. You will be given other processed image.
