Do you have a smartphone and take a lot of pictures? Oh, it’s 2021 already… We will rephrase: you do have a smartphone and take a lot pictures, and that’s why the new app will be extremely useful. Your phone does not have infinite disk space, and neither does the cloud. It is not strange to find your phone or your cloud account (Google Photos, OneDrive, iCloud…) out of space after a few months or years.

That is especially true in Google Photos’ case. We thought they would offer free space forever, but we already saw the party is going to be over very soon

So… what does ShortPixel Gallery Optimizer for Android do?

Our newly created app does what we do best: using the power of ShortPixel‘s algorithms, it optimizes the images you have on your phone so they consume less disk space. You even have our 3 famous compression methods: Lossy, Glossy and Lossless. This way you can choose the quality you want to have.

After the app optimizes the images, you will have effectively reduced the space your pictures take from your phone or from your favorite online service.

Here’s a list of the awesome features included in the app:

  • Optimize images using 3 different quality methods
  • Can work on WiFi only or with mobile data as well
  • You can choose to keep a backup of the original image
  • Remove EXIF data
  • Resize the images to the desired size
  • You can visually compare the results
  • See how much space you saved
  • Bulk optimize or optimize one by one

How to install it?
