In our last blog "PDF Compressor - A quick guide", we talked about how users can compress their PDF files. There is some misconception that our functions are one-sided, but this is a blog post that will disprove it, and show you that it is indeed possible to compress JPEG images on our platform.

We have a solution for all the people who tried to upload images to websites or forums and were met with an error of "maximum file size reached". In this article, we are going to let you know how to compress images, so you can use them wherever your heart desires.

How to Compress in JPG format

Images and pictures are the most commonly used and perhaps the most popular file type that people love to share on the Internet, including social media platforms. JPG, or sometimes called JPEG, is the most used format, when photos have been taken by your smartphone or other digital devices. When you upload the JPG directly to social media or forums, it may exceed the file size allowance due to the images’ high resolution. Sometimes upload failure may occur if the file is too big or there is a limit on the website. If you undergo a problem such as above, then the PDFBear Compression tool will help you compress the images before an upload.

A step by step guide below will show you how you are able to compress your JPG file with our tools:
