Crop the image in the Photos app
The easiest way to reduce the size of an image is to crop it slightly in the Photos app on your iPhone. This will change the resolution of the image by a tiny amount, but will reduce the image size significantly. To crop an image, open it in the Photos app and select Edit at the bottom of the screen. Tap Crop/Rotate and use the frame to crop the image slightly.
Change the image format in the iPhone camera settings

Changing the image format from JPEG to HEIF (High-Efficiency Image Format) will help reduce the file size of the resulting image. The JPEG format stores a lot of information, which can lead to a bloated file size. On the other hand, the HEIF format offers a smaller file size without compromising image quality. Here’s how to switch to the HEIF format.
Step 1: Open Settings on your iPhone and select Camera.
Step 2: Click Formats.
Step 3: Select “High Efficiency”.
Use a third-party app
There are several third-party apps in the App Store that help you resize images. ‘Image size” is one of the highly rated apps for this purpose. Once you’ve installed the app on your iPhone, open it and load the image you want to resize. You can now resize your image by pixels, inches, mm, cm or any other metric. Once you are satisfied with the result, save the image. The saved image will have a significantly smaller file size than the original image.
Send a picture on WhatsApp
Instant Messengers like WhatsApp automatically shrink the images you send on the platform. This is done to increase speed and reduce storage space. While some may consider this a shortcoming, it can come in handy if you want to reduce the file size of an image. WhatsApp also recently launched the ‘Message Yourself’ feature. You can use this feature to send images that you want to reduce. Simply select your name from your contacts and attach and send the images you want.
Use Apple Mail to compress images
While you may not have the ability to shrink images when sending them via instant messenger, Apple Mail allows you to select a specific file size before attaching an image to an email. This is useful because it gives you three file size options: Small, Medium, and Large. You can send the picture by mail through the Photos application. All you have to do is tap on the share icon and select ‘Mail’. After sending the mail, you can download the resized image from the Mail app.
Use the online tool
There are several online tools that you can use to reduce the file size of any image. Img2Go is one of the most popular online compression tools. Here’s how you can use it.
Step 1: OPEN https://www.img2go.com/ in a mobile web browser.
Step 2: Select ‘Compress Image’.
Step 3: Click “Select File” to select the image you want to resize. This image will be uploaded to the website’s servers. In addition to your iPhone’s local storage, you can also choose an image from Google Drive or Dropbox.
Step 4: Select the desired image quality for the resulting image. If you want to compress the image to the lowest possible size, the quality will be lost.
Step 5: Select ‘Start’.
Step 6: Click “Download” to save the resized image.
