Importance of Reducing the MB Quality of Your Photos

Have you ever clicked on a post here on Hive, and many of the images are taking time to load and display fully? I bet you have. This happens mainly when the images are so many. You find yourself waiting for the images to come up, it takes time sometimes and sometimes you get too impatient and end up not seeing all the images.

Sometimes you don't even wait or get impatient because you didn't even know messages were loading, you only find out later on that you missed some images because they didn't load immediately you opened the post and you didn't know there was anything to wait for.

Do you realize that this happens to people who read your posts too? You who made the post know there are pictures there so anytime you decide to view it from your end you wait for it to load and you're more patient and don't get so pissed off at delays.

But a reader might not be as patient as you and might not even know how many pictures to wait for because they weren't the ones who made the post.

These picture loading delays can be caused by poor network connection/service, but it can also be caused or worsened by the MB size of your images. The bigger the size, the more difficult it is to load.

Many people especially those with PCs know how to reduce the size without hurting the quality of the images very easily with different softwares. But sometimes you probably can't get to you PC, or you don't have a PC or for whatever reason you just want to do it with your phone, this is an easy way to do it with your phone without reducing the quality of the image.

How To

Simply download the app called Meme Generator;


Then open it, click on custom meme, which is the option that lets you make a meme out of the pictures on your phone.


When you pick the picture from your phone it would appear like this:


Pick "classic layout" then choose the option for high quality. If you want the image to reduce even further and you don't care about quality you can pick low quality and see if you like it.

The next step is to remove the "Tap here to add text" by clicking on it and removing it.


After that, simply save the image and it would be saved with less MB that it initially had.

Look at the size of these images before and after:



Powerful, isn't it?

Simple and without hurting image quality too.

The End.

Hi there, my novella Professor Otagburuagu just got published. It promises to be thoroughly entertaining and intellectually stimulating. Written by myself and illustrated by Scandinavian artist @katharsisdrill. You can get it from me for just 4 HBD.

You can also order the hard copy from anywhere in the world via this link:

I'm counting on your patronage, thank you!

Roll with @nevies, I run a Humor, deeper thoughts, and sex talk blog here on Hive🌚


Look who is back! And even with a new, juicy delegation haha! :D Welcome back mate!

@tipu curate 3

That's right, @phortun, I'm back, baby!
I came back last week after meaning to come back for months. Damn.

I came to your blog but haven't made a comment yet, I should soon, I've seen all the cool things going on. How're you doing, man?

I know you stopped by my blog, that´s how I noticed you are back :) Well, all good here... Got married, baby on the way, looking for some gigs to survive as Hive still hasn´t mooned :D :/ How about you? How is your book selling?

Wow, look at you, a lot has happened for you. Congratulations, bro!

I'm cool. I've been working some job all year. My book hasn't sold much this year. Hopefully things would change later.

I'm wishing you all the best, man.

Thanks mate! Glad to know that you have been able to make ends meet somehow. I hate to say that but it seems that fulltime Hiving is not an option for me anymore. Much more real life expenses with all the news and changes but still deep in the alt bear market. Not a good combo :D :/

I perfectly understand. Not a good combo at all. I'm glad to know you've got some other thing to do outside hive too. Hopefully hive would come through in future, we just gotta do what we gotta do for now.

This is powerful. The other day I struggled with uploading images to liketu because the size was too big. Like you said those with system can waltz around this.. But I couldn't because I have a phone. Now, this post is an eye opener, no more large images for me and my readers. 💃💃💃
