How Much a JPEG image should be Compressed?

A higher rate (%) of compression will give you a really small file size, but the picture quality will also suffer a lot at the same time. On the other hand, to maintain the picture quality if you compress an image with a lower compression rate you will not see any noticeable changes in the file size of the image.

So you should be looking for a sweet point, where the file size and the quality of the image both are balanced. A default compression rate of 60% is a safer option which works fine in most cases. But everybody has different needs, so I recommend you try different values and go with what works best for you.

Sometimes what matters is just the file size not the quality of the image, so you should be going with a high compression rate in that case. Other times, maintaining picture quality is more important for you while compression, choose a lower rate of compression in that case.

JPEG or JPG which one is Correct?

The simple answer is, both are absolutely correct. JPEG and JPG are both the same thing, there is no difference between them. JPEG is the original file format name which stands for 'Joint Photographic Experts Group'. JPG on the other hand is the shorter form of JPEG. Older versions of Microsoft Windows only supported file extensions of three letters, but JPEG (original) is of four letters so they called it JPG.

Compress JPG Without Losing Quality

You can definitely reduce the size of a JPEG image without losing any picture quality, this is called lossless JPG compression. In our JPG compressor tool at the time of adjusting the rate (%) of compression, set the rate under 60% to achieve a compression that will retain the highest quality. In simple words, a lesser rate of compression means more lossless (no loss) picture quality.
