Pick an image or twenty and let Recompressor go to work for you.
We probe a variety of recompressions to produce a file size vs. quality chart, along with a recommendation.
Inspect a full preview of any result and download all that you like, for free.
Absolutely! Recompressor is completely free to use and there are no ads. We created the site to scratch our own itch and to help you in your pursuit of the perfect image.
Each image is repeatedly recompressed using different settings and compared to your original, producing a file size vs quality chart.
PNG images have their number of colors reduced with minimized visual impact and are optimally recompressed.
JPG images are compressed using MozJPEG. It optimizes your image using e.g. trellis quantization, chroma subsampling and progressive scan optimization.
SVG images are compressed by removing unnecessary tags, comments, and attributes; by converting tags and path data to more compact equivalents; by reducing the numerical precision of path data; and by optionally exporting to the SVGZ format.
RMSE is the root-mean-square per-pixel recompression error and MAX ERROR is the maximum per-pixel error.
These are statistical representations of how different the compressed image is from the original image.
Basically, the smaller the number, the more the new image will look like the original.
Give PixFix.com a try. It cleans up images that have been damaged by noise and excessive JPEG compression. It works great, it's free to use, and it runs entirely in your browser so your images are never uploaded.
