Adobe Photoshop is a software used by every good graphic artist but you don’t have to be a graphic artist to know how to use the software in compressing pictures. There are times when we have pictures with large sizes we would like to reduce to smaller sizes of the same quality. There is no use having large size pictures when you know you could get same quality with a smaller size, uploading large pictures online to a website makes the website slow and it turns people off.
Compressing picture sizes saves a lot of disk space. Assuming you are to copy so many pictures from a particular folder to a hard drive it’s possible you might not have any space left in the hard drive after copying those pictures, compressing them will not only give you more hard drive space left but it will also save your time.
Adobe Photoshop is a great software for compressing pictures, if you do not have it yet make sure to buy one and have it running on your computer.
