3 Free Android Apps To Compress Images / Photos

Why is it necessary to have any means to compress images on your Android device? Well, you share images on social networks, emails, photo sharing sites and chatting services, so its nice to have compressed images as it would help you save some bandwidth.

Compressing images would obviously degrade the image quality, but if that does not matter to you, then go ahead and start using any of these apps. If reducing the size of the images is what you want, then do check out the below free Android apps.

3 Free Android Apps To Compress Images / Photos

Image Optimizer

Out of all the three apps listed here, it offers two different modes to compress images. One makes sure that it does not play with the image quality and get the job done, and the other compression does pull the image quality to a level down (generally, unnoticeable) but does a substantial reduction in size. It supports JPEG and PNG formats.

Hipix Plus

Its an interesting app altogether. When we talk about compressing images, all we think of is reduction in image quality. But this app actually changes the source format to hipix file format which ensures that the image quality is maintained but the size is reduced. Its simple to use, which adds so much to the whole functionality of the app.

Reduce Photo Size

As the name suggests, this app is just meant to reduce the size of the photos. Apart from compressing the images by playing with the image quality, it also lets you crop images which also has a good affect on the size reduction. A straight forward app as it does not have any other services to offer, so it could prove to be good choice.

These are the three apps that I have tried and found pretty useful. Let us know if you like them.
