What to do if your image is too big for Prezly?

What to do if your image is too big for Prezly?

Resizing or further compressing images with free, open source tools

Prezly accepts very large images, but it still has its limits.

Fortunately, there are free, open-source tools you can use to resize them, so they are ready to be uploaded without further obstacles. They even work with batches!

While there are other tools out there, we believe the best one right now is Caesium Image Compressor, which you can download HERE.

How to batch resize/compress images:

After you've downloaded and installed the app, open it, and you'll be greeted by its user interface.

Step 1: Add files or folders

Step 2: Choose your compression and resize options:

Compression reduces the image fidelity, while resizing reduces its pixel size.

⚠️What's best will depend on your original file. Is it very large but not that detailed? Better resize it. Is it extremely high quality? Then choose to compress it.

You can also use a combination of both parameters to increase your gains! (Or losses in this case)

Step 3: Choose your output destination folder options

With all settings and files loaded, hit that "Compress" button!

⚠️Note the "same folder as output" and "suffix" options used here⚠️

You will get to the "Compression Finished" screen

Note the reduction in disk space used by resizing to 75% while retaining the same quality

Step 4: Go to the output folder, depending on your selected settings
