Frequently Asked Questions

I bought the Pro version but I still see ads, or all features aren't unlocked. What can I do?

Open the app and go to the app’s settings. Tap on the Compress Photos Pro tab at the top. Tap on the Restore Purchase link.

Assuming you did purchase the Pro version to begin with, this will unlock all Pro features.

How do I find my photos once they have been compressed?

Compressed images are automatically saved yo your library as well as in an album called “Compressed Photos.” Open the Photos app on your device and look for that album.

I cannot select any photo, or I see a blank screen when trying to select photos. What can I do?

This happens because you didn’t grant the app access to your photo library. In order to fix this, simply open the Settings app, scroll down and tap on the Compress cell, tap on Photos, and finally, make sure to select Read & Write.

This will allow the app to view your photos but also save processed photos to your library.

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.
