When you go to upload your photos you must choose which of the two forms of reduction you want Lossy or Lossless and it only works with JPG and PNG formats.

We suggest you choose the With loss option as it loses a bit of quality but reduces your images much more. You make a clip in the option With lost and then you must select the option Select file. Once this is done, it will take you to the image library and you must choose the photo to reduce and make a clip in Open.

Once this is done, the image will begin to load and then after several seconds a previous image will be shown with the two images, the compressed one and the original one. It will also show us data about its original weight and the weight after compression. This data shows them in MB and KB, it is important that you know that it only supports up to a limit of 10 MB.

It will also show you the reduction percentage, now you will only have to make a clip in the Download the file option. And to finish we save the file on our computer, if you want to compress more images, you can select the option Compress another photo. If you can’t find the image you compressed and now you can send it safely.
