2023-03-10 - Compress a JPG to 200 KB Online

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, which makes them ideal for sharing but not editing. Still, using our advanced compression software, Smallpdf can further reduce the file size by changing the file format to PDF and letting our compression tool work its magic. Similarly, if you have another image type, such as the usually larger PNG format, you can convert it to PDF, compress it, and then convert it to a JPEG file.

What If My JPG Is Still Not Small Enough?


In case our basic compression can’t reduce the size of a JPEG file size to below 200 KB, opt for strong compression instead. This option requires you to have a Pro account with Smallpdf, but you can take advantage of a 7-day free trial to benefit from the Pro features without paying a dime.

If you sign up for a Pro trial, it will also allow you to upload multiple JPGs at once, not only to the converters but also to 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 millions of monthly users thanks to our accurate processing power, quick website, and, most importantly, a completely secure environment for file compression.
