Now select where you would like the compressed pictures to be output.

Select one of three options.

  • “Same folder as input” will put them in the same location as they were imported from. ***THIS OPTION WILL DELETE ORIGINAL COPY'S***

In this example we will put the output pictures in a new folder within the original directory called “compressed”.

Click the “…” to start:

Now open the compressed version and the original to compare:

That’s all folks! You have compressed your images and they are ready to be used on the web!
