Introduction

Everyone is busy. Nobody can wait untill your blog loads completely. So, We should make our blog faster. In this purpose, We face a problem while we upload a image in our blog posts. Because we can't show a low quality image to our visitors. If we make a high quality image, its size gets more thank 1MB. In your initial blogging days, you will face this problem. I also faced this. But I found a permanent solution to this. It is only applicable for mobile phone.


What Is WEBP Format?

WEBP Format is a compressed format of JPEG/PNG. You can compress your photos without losing any visible quality. It will look like a simple JPEG/PNG photo. But it's actually a WEBP Photo. So, you should use WEBP images in your blog website to boost your blog loadtime.
 In fact Google also reccomendes to use WEBP format. If you don't know it, then look at this screenshot below.



It's a screenshot from Google Pagespeed Insights. It's free tool from Google to analyze your website's performance. Through this screenshot, you can see what Google wants.

 It's visible in this screenshot that Google wants speed. Therefore Google mentioned that your blog's images need to be in WEBP format. Though there's are more formats JPEG Varient Formats mentioned in this, but still WEBP is loved more than those. And it's compression process is easy compared to others. Moreover your image quality remains as it is after compression except some minor changes in quality, but it is not visible.

  I use a App that helps me to compress my images quickly, and it's free. Though it shows ads, if you don't upgrade it. But don't worry, the ads are short and skippable. And it doesn't require internet to compress.


What Is The Name Of The App For Compressing Images In WEBP Format?

Now I am going to reveal the name of that App. Its name is Lit Photo(Photo Compress & Resize). Unfortunately it's unavailable for IOS & PC(Both Windows & MacOs). You can use it if you or anyone you are close to, have an Android Phone, you can use this tool. It's so lightweight also. Its size is about 4MB only. It has 5 Millions of downloads and 4.4 Overall Ratings in Google Play Store. You can use it whenever you want to compress images. If you don't want WEBP, you can still compress it without changing its extension. Moreover this App allows you to resize and crop your images. There are many options. You can compress your image while cropping. Its saves your precious time as well as your storage.

  • Open the app and allow storage permission for the first time.
  • Then, choose 'COMPRESS PHOTOS' among the three options.
  • Choose a images or multiple images you need to compress.
  • Then, you will be taken to 'Compression Options Tab'. Here you have choose your settings for compression.
  • At first, you have choose 'Compression Mode'. There are two ways, first one is Quality and the other one is Size. I prefer to use Quality Mode. Select 80% Compression in Quality Mode.
  • Then enable Maintain Resolution. It may be automatically enabled.
  • Then click on File Options. Here you can choose your file type(JPEG, PNG or WEBP). I recommend you to choose WEBP for blog post's images.
  • At Last, click on 'Start Compressing'. It will take a moment to process.

That's all. Our image is successfully compressed. It's a quick process.


Result After Compression

Now we are going to see the result after compression. I'll show you the difference of resolution, size, quality. I am here using my own picture to do comparison. You can see the difference by downloading both images.(Click on them to see Full Preview, then download them)


Image Before Compression

Original Image

Here’s our image before compression. Its resolution is 2430x1769. It's size is 295KB. Look at its quality. Now we'll compare it to our output image after compression.


Image After Compression

Image After Compression

It's our output. Its resolution is still 2430x1769. But its size reduces to only 87KB. Its a huge reduction. Now look at its quality. It still looks like our first image.


Conclusion

As you have seen, the reduction is huge, though it doesn't create any visible changes in quality. It's a dynamic image that I have used to show you the compression process. If you compress simple images with less colours, it will show more reduction in size.
