Tiny Image Processor Manual

3 ways to make images tiny

First select Input and Output Folders. Please note that all images with the same name will be overwritten in the Output Folder. The program looks for .jpg .jpeg and .png images only...

You can select the same folder for Input and Output, so your originals will be overwritten. Not a good idea if you want to try the same images with different settings or if you use the exif tool. Better to make a new folder and store the tinified output there, so you can compare with images tinified with other settings and the original images.

The program searches recursively for images through the input folder you have selected, and copies the folder structure in the output folder. (since v1.1)

Tiny Method One

Use the program stand-alone, without uploading to

Set the JPG Quality to your liking.

You have four options;
1) Keep Original Dimensions, no resizing. (but still jpg compression)
2) Normal Resize, this will resize your images with the entered width-height. If your image orientation is landscape, the number is width, if your image orientation is portrait, the number is height.
3) Fill- Fit, your image will be resized so it fits within the width and height as entered. (original proportion is lost)
4) Uniform, the images will be resized to fit the dimensions you specified, and image proportions will stay the same. So, some of the image will be cut off so it will fit in the "window". So, all your images will have the same dimensions, retaining image proportions.

*note png images are resized (with no loss of transparancy), but not compressed in any way. If you need to tinify your png images, use method two or three.

Tiny Method Two

Use the programs internal jpg compression and upload to

Set the JPG Quality to your liking.

Like Tiny Method One, but after the internal resizing and compression the image is uploaded to to reduce it even more in size. You will need an (free up to 500 images) API key from, get it here. Select "Upload to" after entering your API key.

Tiny Method Three

Skip the resizing and internal compression, upload directly to You will need an (free up to 500 images) API key from, get it here. Select "Upload to" and "Upload Originals"  after entering your API key. This method gives the best quality/size compression.

With Method Two you can get better compression than with Method Three, at the expense of some quality. Try out what is still acceptable for your purpose. You might be surprised.....

*note Uploading to and downloading images from the tinify API takes time, depending on your internet connection speed....

Compression Results

The program gives no indication of the actual reduction result of the tinifying / compression action. Best way of doing things is to put the output of each session into a different folder. Then, you can just right click on the folders (properties)  to compare sizes of the images....

Meta Data, Exif and Dates

If you need to copy the exif data from the original file to the image processed by TiP you can download ExifTool from here:

Place the ExifTool "Windows Executable" in the same folder as TiP and rename exiftool(-k).exe to exiftool.exe. Then check "Exif" in the "Copy" section.

If you want the dates of the image file processed by TiP the same as the original file check "Dates" in the "Copy" section.

NOTE: Does not work if input and output folders are the same ! !
