We have recently launched an image compressor aimed at web designers, web developers and bloggers in general to help optimising photos and images for a faster page speed and better SEO.
Image compression is a term used to describe the process of reducing the amount of space an image takes up. Once you have compressed an image, you can store it more efficiently, which means you can store more than one image on the same amount of storage space. Compressed images can be sent faster, take up less room, or be sent less frequently, as the bandwidth required to send them is smaller. There are two main types of image compression: lossless and lossy.
Although lossy image quality is not as great as lossless compression, the quality difference is almost unnoticeable to human eyes. Lossy image compression gives you almost the same quality as lossless but reduces the image size by up to 90%.
Our image compressor compresses JPG and PNG images at light speed with our browser-based tool.
It’s private (nothing is stored), works offline, no limits, 0 carbon emission.
As the compression is happening in the browser, there are no limits on how many images you can convert or what size of image you can convert.
Since no images are sent to any servers, your images are totally safe and private as no one else can see your images.
Since no servers are involved in the compression process, zero extra electricity is used, hence no carbon emitted.
Compressor allows you to compress
.jpg images as well as
.png images with lossy compression techniques right in your browser. None of your images is sent to any servers for compression. This makes the image compression process ten times faster than other image compress websites like tinypng and compressor.io.
Compressor is the fastest of the most popular images compression websites online. Let’s compare it’s performance with other popular services.
