Squoosh Tip for Photo Compressing and Uploading

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Distinctive / LIC in VA

Test for faster photo uploads using Squoosh.

The above photo is Balls Bluff Civil War cemetery in Leesburg VA The photo size out of camera was 3642 x 2730. I reduced that to 1280 x 831 and 1.40 MB on photo on left and saved to my desktop. I then dragged that photo into Squoosh app which reduced it 80% to 280 KB and there is very little noticable loss in the quality of the compressed photo.

 Of course the photo on right at 280 KB loaded approximately twice as fast as the 1.40 MB photo.

With both photos, I had to drag the corners in after uploading to AR to get them to fit side by side above.

 If you're having trouble uploading photos to your blog or website, try experimenting with compressing photos with an app like Squoosh before uploading. https://squoosh.app/

I was just looking for that.  Thanks for sharing.  I used to compress it in an old version of Photoshop.
