Reduce your JPG to the teeniest size for smooth online submission, using Smallpdf’s online compress tool.

If you need to compress your JPG down to 200 KB or less for online submission, then you’ve come to the right place. With Smallpdf, you can further decrease the size of even the most compressed JPG.

How To Compress a JPG Image to 200 KB for Free

  1. First, convert the JPG to a PDF.

  2. On the right of the result page, click “Compress PDF.”

  3. Choose “Basic Compression” and wait for our software to compress the file.

  4. On the next page, click “PDF to JPG,” then “Convert entire pages” to save the file as an image.

  5. Download your new and compressed JPG.


Drop your JPG's size by over 50% (or more), using this one neat trick

If you didn’t know, JPG images are already compressed images—which makes them ideal for sharing, but not editing. Every time you save a change, the resulting file will become even more pixelated.

Still, using the most advanced compression level, Smallpdf can push the file size even further, as long as they’re in PDF format. Using our conversion functions will also allow you to upload images and convert them to and from the two file types. Similarly, if you have another image type, such as the usually larger PNG format, you can always convert it to PDF, compress, and then convert the image to a JPEG file.

What If My JPG Is Still Not Small Enough?


In case you can’t compress a JPEG file size to below 200 KB, opt for the “Strong Compression” instead. This option requires you to have a Pro account with Smallpdf, but a 7-day free trial is always available, for one-time users.

If you opt to sign up for a Pro trial, it will also allow you to upload multiple JPGs at once, to both converters and the compress function. Despite the powerful compression applied, the output file won’t be distorted and will still be of high quality.

Secure Web Processing


We have over 40 million users every month, thanks to our accurate processing power, quick site, and most importantly—a completely secure environment for file compression.
