There are various reasons why you want to compress images, it might be because you want to add an attachment and a dozen photos coming out straight from your DSLR camera would weigh a couple of hundred MBs.

Like I said that could be a number of reasons why you would want to do that. So in this article, we are going to tell you how you can compress images on a Mac.


Imagine is a cross-platform software for compressing images, and it is pretty efficiently on a Mac. In fact, it is one of the best options you have when it comes to compressive photos.

Either you want to compress a single image or you want to do it in bulk, the Imagine app is capable of doing both.

The best part about this app is, you can specify the Optimisation level separately for each image.

You can also Select the target format for the final optimised image, so you can also use this app for converting JPG photos into PNG or vice versa.

Download the Imagine app using the link below and install it on your Mac, since it is a DMG file downloaded from outside the app store, you will have to allow it from the security preferences of your Mac.

Once installed you can select an image to optimise, by going to the file area or simply dragging and dropping the image into the interface.
