How do I reduce image file size for use on websites? For example, I might have a photo that is over 1000MB but I want it to be under 100MB but still good quality. After I've reduced the actual image height and width, it is still often too big in file size.

If you have SnagIt editor, Please follow the steps:
1. Open the Image in Snagit editor.
2. Go to File > Convert Images.
3. Then click on Next button (Step 1 of 4).
4. In 2nd step click on Modify > Image Scaling > Resize Image.

5. Then reduce the Resolution then current. (72 dpi better for web)



6. Then click on OK button and complete the steps.

Try this maybe this is useful for you.

Hi,
I'm just about to try this out for the first time but as I go to File, there is no 'Convert Images'. Is this something that is on the Windows version, but not the Mac version?
Thanks,
Jen

Hi Jennifer are you sure you are using "Snagit Editor"? Because if you go to "Sngait" then you will not get "Convert Images" option in File menu.

I just upgraded to the newest version of Snagit and now I no longer see the ability to change the DPI.
