Save space on your iPhone

Are you plagued by the “Storage almost full” alert on your iPhone or iPad? If so, this app can help! 

Use Compress Photos to shrink the file size of photos and regain storage space on your device. When applied to all your pictures, Compress Photos can help you store up to 10 times more photos on your iPhone or iPad.

Keep image quality sharp

Compress Photos is easy to use but it is incredibly powerful. 

The intelligent compression engine allows you to reduce the file size of photos without reducing their quality. With two compression settings to choose from, Compress Photos can easily shrink photos by 90% or more without a visible difference.

Easily locate compressed photos

Compressed photos are saved to both your main library and a dedicated album conveniently called “Compressed Photos” on your device, allowing you to easily locate processed pictures. This new album is automatically created when you run the app and save compressed photos to your device.

Supported file types

Compress Photos works with all PNG, JPEG, HEIF, and HEIC image files.

Before and after samples

  • Before: 2.3MB — After: 207kb (91% smaller)
  • Before: 4.1MB — After: 492kb (88% smaller)
  • Before: 4.8MB — After: 384kb (92% smaller)

For best results, we recommend setting both compression settings to 80%, which should significantly reduce the file size without a noticeable difference to the naked eye. 

Pro version

Upgrade to the Pro version of Compress Photos to remove ads, and compress more than 3 photos at once.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a limit to how many photos can be compressed at once?

Yes, for performance reasons, there is indeed a limit, which we set to 100 images. If you use an older device such as an iPhone 6, the app will warn you when it thinks you are compressing too many images at once. As a rule of thumb, it is best to compress 30 or less images at a time. Newer devices such as the iPhone XS are capable of processing more images at once.

My iPhone crashes when I use the app. What can I do?

This is a clear sign that your iPhone is under heavy load. To avoid this, make sure to compress less images at a time.
