How to compress JPG online using Smallpdf

Optimized for Size and Quality


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

If the compressed image file is still too big, you can repeat the process using ‘Strong Compression.’ This option will reduce the image size even more, but it may affect the quality of your JPG files. Strong compression is a Smallpdf Pro feature, but you can try it out for free with a 7-day free trial.

Can I Remove My JPEG Files From Your Site?


You don’t need to worry. At Smallpdf, we scan our system every five minutes and remove any uploaded images that have been lingering online for more than an hour. During this time, feel free to play around with the compression tool as much as you need.

And remember, other than JPEG images, you can also compress other image formats, such as BMP, TIFF, GIF, and PNG. We’ll squeeze and save the output file as a JPG for you—easy-peasy!

Can I Compress JPGs on My Mobile?


Yes! With the Smallpdf Mobile App, you can compress your JPGs on the go. Upload the JPG to the app, convert it to a PDF, compress it, then convert it back to JPG—a few clicks and you’re done! Makes sharing images from your mobile quick and easy.
