Hey Warriors,

I have a few image ads that are larger than 50kb and Goo-gle won't let me upload them through the Adwords Editor software. I need to reduce the size to anything less than 50kb without changing the format of the image. Let me know if you have a solution to this!

Cheers!

    Resave them with a higher compression.

    You need software. I use something called Irfanview. It can convert between formats (one format may result in a file of less than 50kb), you can also do what they call decrease the color depth (4 bits per pixel instead of 8 will reduce file size by half without very noticeable loss of quality).

    I use PaintShop Pro, load image, and then save as "jpeg" and specify compression strength.

    You do NOT need to play with "formats" and reduce imaged depths etc...i dont think thats the right approach.

    I used paint shop pro to size the image down to 500 by 400, maintaining the aspect ratio. I saved it using a compression factor of 10.
    The final image is definitely easier to view. Image size is 52 KB, just a tad over our requirement of 50 KB.

      I use Jasc Paint Shop Pro. When saving image, there is an option called "Optimize". It is there where you can compress image and reduce its size.

      you can change compression of any jpeg before saving, you dont even need to resize.

      10% is usually VERY good quality, image might be too big.
      20% is still good, file size smaller.
      And you can crank this all the way up to 99% compression, but usually from 50% and up image quality will significantly decrease.

      A very good FREE program to do all this is "faststone image viewer", simply click image and then "save as"...except that the scale is exactly the other way around, eg. you set jpeg compression quality with the options slider. (higher=better quality and bigger file size)

        I tried Fast Stone this morning but when I saved the images the size stayed the same..

        I'm downloading Paint Shop Pro...

        Thanks Guys!
