Most Android devices have high megapixel cameras, so when you click any photo, it will occupy about 1-5 MB size on an SD card or on internal storage. Suppose you are capturing 10 photos from your device; it will occupy an average 30 MB size.

Hence you may be looking for a solution to resize images on your phone so that you can save more space and store more photos in the same available storage.

Image Optimizer - Shrink Images To Save SD Card Space On Android - theandroidportal.com

Now you might not have captured only 10 images; you know how many images you have on your device’s SD card. The good point is that most mobile phones have a default setting to save all captured images on SD cards.

You might have to capture images of small size (it’s not possible) or increase the device’s SD card /memory storage. Google play store has an awesome android app that can shrink your image file size without losing your image quality.

Image Optimizer optimizes you to save space on your smartphone by optimizing your image files. Image Optimizer supports two optimization techniques; you have the choice:

1. Compress your photos to save a big amount of space with a slight, often unnoticeable quality loss.

2. Just optimize your picture while retaining the original quality.

The main advantage of this android app is that it supports both JPEG and PNG file formats. Some devices with few spaces already compress images with a high ratio, so it’s normal to save a few bytes or nothing at all since Image Optimizer will never save a new image bigger than the original!

You might have heard or tried the option in GIMP or Photoshop that has the option to reduce image size on a computer. The option is Save For the Web. This option effectively compresses your file/images/picture size without losing your original image quality.

You can check the image optimizer work from the above image. The original captured image size was about 1.03MB which was compressed up to 148.04 Kb; saved space is 87%, that’s good for low-memory android devices.

By optimizing the images on the device, you will save the precious memory of your device/SD card & store more than it can.
