Free Tech Tools I find helpful: Photo compression tools

image

I recently ran a test using Google to test my blogs mobile speed. You can test your own page here. The final test results also offered suggestions on how to improve your webpage. You can also have a full report emailed to you free of charge. As I read the results on how I could improve my blogs speed I also did some searches on the info provided. During my searches, I found some great info from other blogs sharing their thoughts on image compression products. I also found a few of these on my own while trying to better organize my blog.

If you’re like me free is usually the way to go. I don’t mind buying software but I do like trying it out beforehand. I also don’t want to spend a lot of money on software I won’t use often. 

I will admit some of the products I share may have a limited time use or may have an upgrade in services for a fee.As for now, these are free.

Photo Compressor

You can read the full definition of what the product does here

I will be sharing ones I found for Windows. I know there are many that are offered for Mac users. 

Online photo compression site

Compressor.io

This site is great because you can upload an image and compress it while you’re on the go. You can also save it to various sites such as Google Drive or Dropbox. You can also save the photo to your computer, phone or tablet as well. 

Here’s an example of a picture I uploaded.

As you can see it gives you the options of where you’d like to save your file with the change in file size along with the compression percentage. 

This is a great tool to use if you need to upload single images.

Caesium

This software is great because it allows you to compress individual images all at once. You can also compress entire image folders as well. The website offers a few other products as well. I liked that this software is free and it has a simple layout. 

It’s very simple to use and has a basic layout. Here’s an example.

Caesium allows you to leave both the original file alongside the compressed version. You can select the percentage of the compression as well. There is also a resizing function too. 

Depending on the number of files compression speed may vary. 

I hope to create a video showing you how the compression tools work. So be on the lookout for that. 

In my next post, I’m going to share a few photo tools I’ve used along with two iframe generates I’ve come across.

Have you used either of the above-mentioned photo compressors? If so share your thoughts. Also, don’t forget to share some of your favorite photo compression tools with me as well.
