When to reduce image file size
An image file may be too big if it does not fit the file size restrictions for uploading on a website, or if you store multiple images on your hard drive, and they take up too much space. In such cases, you might benefit from reducing the file size so that you can upload it more easily, or store more files on your computer. In general, smaller files are easier to work with and easier to manage than large, bulky files.
How to reduce image file size
In order to reduce image file size, it is best to have the right software installed on your computer. This is especially important if you work with large numbers of files, and want to compress them in bulk. Compression software has the ability to rearrange the data in the image file for more efficient storage, leaving you with the same image file, but taking up less space.
Reducing image file size using compression software
The actual process of reducing image file size is extremely easy. All you need to do is open your compression tool, select the files that you would like to compress, and allow the program to complete the process. The key part for you is selecting the right software. First of all, make sure that the software is compatible with the type of file that you want to compress.
