Compressing images for website design FAQs

Is it possible to compress more than one image at a time?

Yes, on the https://compressjpeg.com website you can upload up to 25 images at a time for compression.

Note: after the website completes image compression you can download a zip file contain all compressed images.

Why should I compress images?

In the above video tutorial, I downloaded an image that was 100kb in file size. I could have used this image on my website, but I first removed any unwanted content from the image by cropping it in Photoshop. This help to save some size on the image as the less content we display the smaller the file size.

Note: I exported the image at 100% in Photoshop as a jpg file. I did this so that the compression website has the best quality image to run the compression algorithm.

After completing the compression the file size was reduced to 31.9kb. We started with a 100kb file so we have saved more than 60% on the file size.

This may seem small, but if you apply this to all the images on your website, you will see it will help to speed up the website when loading on a visitor's device.

What if I have a WordPress website?

If you are using WordPress then you can use a plugin to apply compression to your images. I would still suggest that you resize and crop images in Photoshop first, as plugins can not do this for you.
