Reduce image file size using Adobe Photoshop

Reduce image file size using Adobe Photoshop


1. Have you ever wanted to compress your image size without quality loss? Compressing image size is good, the image will take less time to load, it saves space and not to mention valuable bandwidth on your server.

Below is a picture that I took a few months ago, The file size of the image is a about 96kb.


Now open the file at Adobe Photoshop

2. My aim is to compress the image below 10kb without any quality loss. Many people make the mistake of using the usual File > Save as .JPG option.

3. Instead, go to [File > Save For Web]. Notice the "Save for web" text.. ;)

Select the JPG option and move the slider across until you see a loss in quality. For me it I stopped the slider at around 40 or any desire compression size (should be less than 60). Then obviously click "Save".

4.Okay, the below image has been reduced by 80kb, The file size of the image is now ONLY 16kb Just "right click > properties" on the image to see the image size.
