How To Compress JPEG Files Using MS Office Picture Manager

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Actually I got this problem while I filled the online job’s form in JobsMalaysia.


Based on the picture above, the maximum size of certificate (in form of JPEG file) that I can upload into my job’s form is only 200KB. It give me a little problem when I have the JPEG file with more than 200KB in size. Just to let you know, my JPEG file actually come from PDF file format. Tonight I will show you how I compress it using Microsoft Office Picture Manager.

  4. Click Compress Pictures and you will get the another sidebar at the same place. See the picture below.


  5. Click radio button Web pages –-> click OK.

  6. Now, you will save the file. To ease you to find the location of the saved file, you can click File –-> click Save As…


  7. The Save As box will be displayed on your screen. Give the suitable name to the compressed file. Then choose the location which you think it is easy for you to find the file, eg: Desktop
