Compress Your Files in a Click with Zamzar!

Zamzar are delighted to now offer file compression as well as file conversion! So, if you have large files you need to compress, you can now use the Zamzar compression tool to easily reduce the file sizes without impacting the overall quality of the files.

At Zamzar, we’ve been converting files since 2006 and in that time we’ve seen the number of different file types increase rapidly, with each file type offering different benefits. However, one thing has remained constant – users want their files to be as high quality as possible, while also being as small in size as possible.


Why have we built a tool to compress files?

We’ve all been at work and been sent a spreadsheet, document or presentation that has blown our mailbox; we’ve all visited websites that seem to take an age to load because the images used on the site are unnecessarily large in size. Sometimes, there’s a requirement to have the highest quality file possible – perhaps a wedding picture you want printed or a movie that you are airing; however, most of the time we want to be able to send files quickly and to also be able to consume them easily. This is why we built the Zamzar compression tool. We’re able to compress a variety of different types of files, including document and image formats, and enable users to make those files smaller while still retaining the overall file quality. Just like our conversion tool, the service is simple to use and can all be done online in an instant.

How do you use the tool to compress your files?

We deliberately designed the compression tool so it mirrors the conversion tool that our users are already familiar with. Simply upload the file that you wish to compress and then our compression tool will automatically begin to compress that file; you’ll be taken to a new screen where you can download your newly compressed file. As with our conversion tool, you don’t need to download any software to be able to compress your files. You’ll also have the option to sign up for an account, which will allow you to store your compressed files on the cloud (via Zamzar), as well as providing you with the ability to compress larger files and compress more of them.

What are the benefits of the Zamzar file compression tool?

  • Smaller file sizes without loss of quality
  • Easy to use and no software download required
  • Files compressed in seconds
  • Many file types supported, including documents, presentations and images
  • Use on any device and on any operating system

Does this mean any changes for the Zamzar conversion tool?

No, our file conversion tool remains unchanged and users can continue to use it to convert files. Our commitment to file conversion remains absolute and every day we strive to improve the file conversion process for our users. We’ve simply added file compression as an addition to our file conversion service, as a useful extra tool for our users.
