How to compress images for free

Online image compression

Reducing the file size of your picture is easy. This is how you can do it:

Upload your image via browsing, drag & drop, using a link or a cloud storage. Afterward, choose the compression rate. There are four compression rates you can choose from, depending how small you want your file to be in the end. Choose one and click on “Convert”.

Also note that your image will automatically be converted into JPG for optimal compression.

That’s it! Leave the rest to us!

Compress an image

The image compress feature of Img2Go is available for image files only. This means that it should be used to reduce image size only.

The following formats are the best supported ones.

Raster Image Formats:


Vector Image Formats:


Special Image Formats:


However, you can only save your compressed image as JPG.

Why use image compression?

Compression does not touch the actual dimensions of the image. Instead, it reduces the file size of a JPG, BMP, SVG or other image files.

This is helpful when you plan to either upload your images online or send it via e-mail. Even sending files via WhatsApp, there are file size restrictions that might prevent you from sending larger images.

If you compress images, you can reduce the image’s file size either by a bit or by a lot until you can easily upload or send it.

100% file safety

Any step of the way, Img2Go makes sure that your files are safe. This includes a secure server connection, encrypted data transfer, and more.

Furthermore, no rights of your file are distributed to any third party or even our own team. The images and all converted files are not checked manually either.

Image file size reduction

By changing or adjusting the quality of your image, you can easily reduce the file size of any image.

We provide four different presets for you to use. By choosing one, the quality of your image will be adjusted. How does this effect the file size? The lower the quality of the image, the smaller your file becomes. This means that choosing the best quality will cause far less compression thanthe aptly named “Best compression” setting.
