Via the Shrink Me FAQ:
- “Why should I compress images? Image compression is ideal if you want to make your site / app load faster or to save some storage.

- What Compression Ratio is used for JPG images? Shrink Me’s compression ratio for JPG images is 60%. In the future, you will be able to change this value.
- What is the maximum file size? Currently there is no maximum file size limit. Beware that big file sizes will take longer to compress.
- Can I compress multiple files at once? Yes, you can shrink as many as you like at once.
