Compress Images at Optimum Quality

You may notice when browsing the web that different sites may feature jaw-dropping high-quality images, while others may include blurry or lower-quality offerings. This is where the ability to compress images online comes in handy. Image compression is a process wherein the bytes of an image file are minimized to reduce the overall file size, while not harming the actual quality of the image. If you don’t compress an image before posting it to an app or site, you may instead get a lower-quality version. Picsart can help you compress your photo or image in moments with just a few clicks to receive high-quality compressed images to fit any app, website, or software program.
