Reducing a file’s size to 50 KB may appear incredible, even for JPEGs, but compressing is kind of our specialty. Of course, whether or not we can actually get your file down to 50 KB kind of depends on the original file size.

Easily compress images to 50KB online using Smallpdf

If you’d like to know how the magic works, here’s a little insider information. When you drag your JPEG file into our compression tool, we first turn it into our favorite format, PDF. That’s because once it’s a PDF file, we can really get to work. Next, we compress the file. You can already see the compression rate of the file at this point, so you can check if your JPEG has been compressed to less than 50 KB. If the file size is still too large, you can always try the strong compression option. This feature is available to users with Smallpdf Pro accounts only, but you can still use it if you take advantage of our 7-day free trial. Once that’s done, converting the PDF back to its original JPEG format only takes one click.

Our compression tool can handle more than JPEG files, though. Other file types, such as PNG or BMP, can also be compressed in the same way we described above.

Compress JPEG to 50KB on the Go


Smallpdf offers a mobile app, so you’re ready to go whenever and wherever you need to compress or convert your JPEG files. Simply import any image in your gallery or even scan an image directly in the app. When using the Smallpdf Mobile App to compress a JPEG, you’ll have to start by converting the file into a PDF first, using our JPEG to PDF tool before accessing the PDF compressor. Other than that, it’s exactly the same process. Just convert your compressed PDF back to JPEG and save the image. Granted, it may take a little longer, but you can get it done from anywhere!
