Reasons You Should Compress Your Image Files

Optimize Website:

Websites with uncompressed images most often have a longer load time. Slow page load speed affects SEO and search result placement. Site visitors will click away when they have to wait too long for a page to load.

Email Attachments:

Each email provider sets their own file size limits for email attachments. If an image file is too large you may not be able to send it, and at the very least transmission time can be very slow.

Storage Space:

Smaller image file sizes take up less space. Compressing images allows you to store more photos and graphic files on your phone, laptop and computer and reduces overall memory usage when trying to open them.
