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.


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 notable difference.


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.


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


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.


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

Payment will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase and will auto-renew at the same price every year, unless canceled in your iTunes account settings at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Subscriptions may be managed and auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your account settings after purchase.

I am not a computer person and this was really easy !

I have been trying to load images of my art onto an online site and could not get past “go” . Naturally I cropped them , but they were still to large of a file. Well , not anymore ! This worked and it was simple.... though I did goof somehow and couldn’t access my albums . My fault , of course. So I emailed support and got a super quick response , today , a Saturday! Whoo hoo !
Ben told me step by step what to do ,,, easy , and I just compressed my first photo. 🤗🤸‍♀️

I just started using

I only gave 4 stars mainly because I’m trying it out to see how it works. And if it benefits me since I have tons of photos for my jewelry business that I don’t want to get rid of for future needs plus the ones of my lit’l girl from birth on up to now that take up lots of space
If it helps tremendously as it appears would, then I’d absolutely give an extra star
However only issue have is they ask for upgrade too quickly and I only buy pro versions after I see if there a need for service so maybe not so much up in your face about these 2 things please. I can bet ppl would be more apt to add on after they get a chance to try it out a bit before being blasted with those things.

Quality preserved but not Metadata

This app does what it is supposed to do, reduce the file size of your photo significantly. However, for my purposes I can’t use it because it doesn’t preserve metadata on the compressed photo. It’s a shame because I really liked the EXIF app from this developer and wanted to get my compression app from the same source. I use photos for insurance claims. The metadata is critical to my work.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the honest review. I took note of it and will work on implementing a toggle for preserving metadata (or not) in the next update.
