How To Use the Photos App to Compress Videos
The Photos app, a familiar tree in our iPhone jungle, has some tricks up its leafy branches for compressing videos.
- Choose the Video: Open the Photos app and select the video you want to compress.
- Edit Mode: Tap on “Edit” in the top right corner.
- Save as New Clip: After making any minor edits (or none at all), tap “Done” and choose “Save as New Clip” to preserve the original.
- Send via Mail: Share the new clip using the Mail app. The iPhone will automatically compress the video to a size suitable for email.
Note: The video sent via email will be compressed, but the one in your Photos remains the original size. To keep the compressed version, save it from your Sent mailbox.
How To Use a Third-Party App: Compress Videos & Resize Video
Sometimes, a tool from outside our usual jungle can make our adventures a bit easier. Let’s explore the “Compress Videos & Resize Video” app.
- Download the App: Find “Compress Videos & Resize Video” on the App Store, download and open it.
- Select Your Video: Choose the video you wish to compress from your library.
- Adjust Quality: Select the compression settings, remembering that lower quality equals a smaller file size.
- Save or Share: Once compressed, save the video back to your library or share it directly from the app.
