266/365 ~Testing iPhone Image Compression using the Image Compress App

by Heidi Egerman September. 23, 2018 520 views

Apparently, uploading images to a Photoblog in Spain using different WiFi connections can be slow and time consuming. Therefore I am looking for some solutions for Doreen at Shaddoecamino and myself while walking the Camino.

Can you tell which image has been compressed?

I used the Photo Compress App. The compression details are below. I’ve reduced the file size by at least half, from 3.2MB to 1.5MB.

If anyone has ideas or has a better solution, I'd love to hear it. This little app is easy to use and converts the image very quickly.

Continued. . . And more testing.

The first image was the original 3.2 MB image. 🤓

The third image was compressed at the compression below.

I'm viewing on a 28" monitor and can see no degradation.

Thanks Bill. Good to know. This seems to be the easiest and quickest solution for compressing images for the Photoblog.

I've been using my iphone quite a bit for photos lately, and compressing them in Lightroom. 
It tends to make the pictures noisy, especially in low light, and any kind of zoom .
Although some people seem to do pretty well with it, I've had to change the way I look at things...not altogether bad, just different grinning

Thanks Joe. 
Are you using thr Lightroom app on your phone? The challenge we have is that we are traveling and only have our iphones for editing, compression, etc. I thought I would try PhotoShop Express app as well, although I thought these compression were good. I can’t see much degradation, if any.
